. Here are documents giving some suggestions for possible other careers. In teaching you have built up skills and experience which are transferable to other areas of employment. In another thread I have given links to these pages with details of transferable skills: Transferable skills of teachers. Transferable skills 2 There is also an attached document showing more transferable skills, and then goes on to show pages and pages of alternative careers that need these skills. The other attached documents give possible career areas linked more directly to teaching in some cases, but not in schools. One of them is designed for Uni lecturers moving out of teaching, but I reckon that the suggestions will be equally valid for school teachers. And don't forget the very useful National Careers Service which is free and available to all. If you phone them, they often arrange for someone to ring you back to give an objective view of other possibilities. I trust that some of these will ring a bell and suggest a hopefully less stressful future for those of you who are in very difficult situations. Best wishes .
