    Hi all

    been teaching a number of years but due to the state of my career and stress Im taking steps to change.

    If I apply for a non teaching job,do I still need to give to give the same notice as usual. I’m not in an academy but have heard i do but I have also heard from some that I don’t.

    many thanks in advance

    Your contract doesn't say you have a different notice period depending on your reason for leaving, I assume?

    Yes, you most likely do.
    Your notice is to leave your current post, it matters not a jot what you are going to do afterwards.

    If you need to leave earlier, then chat to your head. You might be able to organise something agreeable to both sides.

    Yes, what @caterpillartobutterfly says. It's irrelevant what job you are going to, even if the job is in another field outside education altogether. Whatever your contract says is your notice period is what you have to give if you want to leave (unless you can negotiate something shorter).
