I began my NQT year in January and have completed my first term of induction. I did not look for jobs for sept 2010 as I was not sure if I wanted to teach but I worked in supply and was appointed at one of my supply schools. My first term was tough and has confirmed my initial thoughts that I do not want to pursue a career in teaching. I am dreading going back to school next week and can't bear the thought of having to continue to teach until the summer. I am on a contract at the school until august 2011 but I am wondering if I would be able to leave school before that. Am I able to go against my contract? Im just not sure if I can contiue as I know for definite that teaching is not for me and once I am going to look for other career options. If any body is able to advise me of what I am able to do I would be very grateful. I feel completely stuck and unsure and just dont know what to do!
