Not much of a story IMO. We all know that going from uni into the first formal working role is difficult. We all know that the NQT year is the hardest and most exhausting of your career for reasons which should be glaringly obvious to any experienced teacher. Being ready to quit after 3 weeks and doing so, citing harm to psychological and emotional well-being, after just 7 weeks is rather sensationalist and should raise questions over the recruit's resilience, readiness for the workplace and persistence. None of which means I'd recommend teaching in the state sector to a friend - I wouldn't - but we shouldn't forget that there are new teachers out there who enjoy what they are doing and continue to do it for years. Now more than ever, it's really not for everyone. It is more of a concern that we aren't able to screen our new trainees well enough for suitability.
