Leaving your teaching job for a new career can be a daunting but rewarding decision. When I made the decision to leave the profession, I found it challenging to identify which employers would value my skills and how to transfer into a new profession without taking too much of a pay cut. If this sounds like a familiar thought pattern, you are not alone! Around 2000 people visit this blog each month looking for guidance about how to quit teaching and being a new career; regaining a work/life balance and waking up each morning with a spring in their step! I published a guide to the calculated hourly pay for teachers as a way of highlighting the fact that a perceived pay-cut can actually be a pay-rise! Leaving Teaching Jobs & Career Advice can be hard to come across, and I wanted to change that!
I decided in late 2019 that I wanted to produce books for teachers like you; ready to leave the profession but uncertain how to begin the hunt. Consequently, my first two eBooks were devised:
