I left primary teaching a year ago, after only a term on the job, due to depression and anxiety caused by a bullying deputy head (I'm the tenth member of staff to leave directly because of him). I've been looking for work for a year since and had no luck. I know all about transferable skills, how to apply for a job and interview techniques and nothing seems to help. I get told I give good answers and that I am personable but that I lack experience. I have tried to get temp jobs but the agencies seem to never offer me positions. I'd still like to work in education, so museum education or training adults. I've also applied to a part time primary role that would suit me better, due to having two days to get a load of admin and CPD done. I'm also happy to default back into my old degree in biomedical sciences. I'd be OK with retraining but I am concerned about the sunk cost of a third qualification and the time it would take to get into work. I'm close to 26 and have ~5 months of work experience to my name; this has to be seen as a liability to employers. I could retrain for IT and do some work on the side.for some extra money but that would be my only option. Any thoughts or similar stories that would be helpful?
