Hello all, My partner who has just started her NQT year has succumbed to the demands and stress of the job. She may be only a few days into her work but she is a wreck with stress. She is currently undertaking a temporary contract, however she can't cope. As a teacher myself who has suffered badly with stress my advice to her was to get out if she felt that way. She is only 22 and believe that leaving earlier rather than later is better. She has seen the state I got into in my last post and I don't want her to go through what I have gone through. Would she be able to resign on the grounds of stress?
