Hi I really need some help. Have been teaching for the last 3 yrs in Year 1 I am considering doing something new. While my class are lovely and I work in a nice school most of the time, I can no longer cope with the workload and the affect it is having on my family life. The last year has been most hectic with things going on in my personal life- on top of the actual stress of observations, planning, assessments, Ofsted etc!! I have decided that whilst I love being with the kids- I would like to take a backseat- maybe a TA but really don't want all my training to be wasted. I was rated by Ofsted as good, but at the moment don't believe I am!! I am down a little, but really need to put my family first and make time for my own children. I have recently found a job advertised as Learning Mentor but am not sure what they do- can anyone help and let me know? Also if I hand my notice in (when is my official leave date- as job says start date of 26 April- and I was under impression that notice time was up till 30 April. Salary wise I will be taking a pay cut- how much will (17100-21100pa)pro rated be? hrs are 30.5 over 39 weeks- I understand this is split between 12 mths so you still get a salary in holiday months. Is this correct? Any help advice would be great.
