Moving on...but not out of choice

Discussion in 'Primary' started by silverdale1766, Jul 5, 2015.

  1. I'm leaving my current job at the end of term, it was temporary but I've been there a couple of years and have really enjoyed my time there. I have a job from September in a larger school with a more 'corporate' feel to it. I accepted the post because I just couldn't do without a job but I'm already regretting my decision.ni wanted to be excited about the job but I guess the fear of starting afresh, the upset at leaving a school I love and knowing I'm going to an outstanding school with lots of pressure is really stressing me out.

    I need reassurance that this is a normal feeling but if the worst comes to the worst will employers even look at someone who has left a new job quite soon after starting?

    Absolutely. Anyone who's 'settled' in a school will tell you the 'thought of the unknown' and having to re-establish yourself from scratch is always a bit daunting.

    You can't really 'get excited' about the new job whilst you're still working in the environment of the old one.Once you start planning over the summer, sorting through resources (which ones to keep and which to discard) you'll probably start to feel that excitement.
