The purpose of this web-site is to share my personal research on potential alternative careers to teaching and provide support for teachers in a similar position.
The site details a process from the initial trauma of leaving the profession, through careers advice and selection techniques, before the examination of some exciting new opportunities. Wherever possible I have attempted to include the most relevant and useful web links with the information provided, but not over face you with information overload. The sites presented should provide an excellent introduction to each of the careers detailed.
I honestly don't know what direction I will take now. Having been through the process I feel I am armed with a wealth of information to make a rational choice about my whole future. Will I return to a teaching role, move into a support service or head for the private sector? Hopefully I will keep everyone informed via the blog attached to this site. Please feel free to comment on the entries or contribute to the site's forum. The site is by no means the finished article and hopefully readers will share their expertise and add to the knowledge base presented.
