I have handed my notice in and I am leaving teaching at Christmas. I have been on main scale 6 for the past two years. Last year I passed my performance management but decided not to apply to go through threshold because I felt so down and disheartened I didn't want to offer any more of myself to whole school responsibilities. I was thinking that I would like to go through threshold to increase my income before I leave and I may use my teaching skills sometime in the future. I have already given my notice in, Is it cheeky of me to apply for threshold??
