Hope you don't mind if I don't say.....for various boring reasons.
It is s/thing clinical in NHS though.

I took a year's sabbatical from mine to go and live abroad, then extended for a year, then came back and resigned!

Didn't ask.....
(Flippancy aside, I knew they would have me back as there was quite honestly noone else to do my job, but...flipping through my Health Trust notes on flexible working,I note that anyone who has worked for over 12 mths is eligible for consideration at least. Can't say fairer than that...

Do you work for a public body?

Hang on.reading your stuff, I take it you're a teacher.
Thinke you're very wise to give it a test run. Do you speak Portuguese btw?
