Hello everyone, just looking for some advice...
I am currently a teacher in a primary school but feel I am falling out of love with the job. I'm feeling it's an endless cycle and I can't keep up!
Any suggestions of alternative careers I could pursue? I'm not in a position to child mind etc. would even be happy to move away from education altogether!

What is your degree in? How old are you? How much money do you need to earn?

Thanks for your reply. I have a degree in primary education and have been teaching 5 years..I'm willing to take a pay cut as this is realistic. Anything around £22000 and over would be preferable

I stour degree a 2:1 or better from a good university? If so you might be able to access a graduate scheme in another area. Retail maybe?

Do you have any other interests? Do you need to stay in the uk?
