I have effectively left teaching. It has been two years since I was last in class because of disability discrimination. I have experienced this in every school I have worked in. I have a non-visible disability so it has been easy to dismiss while also holding me account for any impact it has made on my performance. I left one school with a settlement but a bad reference 3 years ago. I was just too tired to keep on fighting and could not get the reference changed. In my next school the deputy head read between the lines of the reference and set out to get rid of me. To cut to the chase, I am taking the school to employment tribunal early next year but will have to go through another settlement negotiation along the way. I would like to try something else but would like ideas and advice. Sorry to say I am not one of those people who has a passion they could change into a career. I'm male, 47 years old and single. I live in central London but might consider leaving. So pulses and minuses as to life stage and commitments.
