Hi all, I have been lurking here for a few months now, following threads and looking through old ones for advice. I am a teacher being made redundant from a small primary school where I have been working for three years due to low numbers. As I have been on various part time to full time hours over those years my redundancy pay is not very much. I have looked at other teaching jobs. Applied for two, invited for two interviews but only attended one. Didn't get the job although they were very positive. However, I have increasingly been feeling (over the past 6 months or so) that I am not enjoying teaching. I find the extra admin etc so frustrating and the tasks we are expected to do are endless. I have felt pressured by current head to apply for teaching jobs as they always go on about my career and the fact I studied for four years plus working there and saying what they would do in my situation. I have been looking for other education type jobs that might pay something similar but not been very lucky. I have applied for an admin type council job so that I can earn whilst looking for something I could feel excited about and have been invited for interview but feel anxious about the way forward. I have so much going on in my head about my situation, going into the world of work beyond the classroom and what others will say if I don't carry on teaching. I have thought about going on supply for a while to clear my head and take the pressure off but I know there is not much money in this anymore. I have already had a recurring stress related illness develop because of everything going on. I don't really know what I am asking of you all but has anyone got any advice? I would love a job where I only work during the working set hours and then get to go home and relax/ have a hobby but feel worried about my next step.
