That's going to be a challenge if he's taking up teaching.

Beta- just don't become one of those awful teachers that constantly bangs on about the pressure of their job as if it's the only profession in the world that's got stress involved.

...I thought that was an absolute prerequisite? ;)

True though, I have more stress on me than on Vanessa Feltz's knicker elastic...

You do realise that theres an entire module anout how teachers are the only people who have any stress. Theres another about how to continually drop "12 weeks holiday" into conversations.

Provost Harrison

That 12 weeks holiday business is a bit of a plus.

I would like to do the job but unfortunately it would require one hell of a pay cut from what I am on now...

you must have a poor live if that is your main reason

they must be paying you well in industry then!

Main scale teachers with 5 years experience can earn up to 30K in london without any assessed/managment points. Thats more than I was on as a post-doc and more than a lot of univeristy staff.

With assessment and 10 years exp that goes to around 40K,

Management grades in school go suprisingly high. The head of a large secondary school can be on 70-80K, the highest paid in the UK state sector is currently on 120K. And theres a lot more heads than their are well paid biochemistry professors...

Independants pay slightly more (according to a friend who is head of humanities at one in kent)

Yeah, industry pays a lot better than academia...no doubt about that. I am earning more than that at the moment so hence it would be pretty difficult.

I certainly think you made the right decision...I got out of academia whilst I had the chance because I knew it was going to lead nowhere. At least now I feel I have a future and a career...

Did I say it was the main reason anywhere? No. It is a factor. I enjoy my job so it isn't a problem, but it was one of the options open to me that I was considered. But my current employer has made me a pretty good offer and has good prospects. Besides the option is still open to me should I choose to pursue it.

its so much nicer when the career structure is well defined. Academias structures are so fucked up its a wonder anyone stays in. And it seems that the people who do get somewhere because everyone else has buggered off.

Good luck with the teaching, i am starting it as well in a week (eek making me go into a room full of 9yr olds wasn't my idea how secondary teacher was going to start but hey). As you said in the pm, let's see who gets assaulted first :) You in SE London or me in Nottingham/Derby/Leicester.

Who knows.. maybe my placement school will be some cushy school in the countryside somewhere.

Was going to go to Norwich but they ddin't want me.. don't think King's Lynn would've been a great place either.

As opposed to 'warzone' Nottingham :lol:

Well if Loughborough hadn't wanted me I would have ended up at Notts Trent.. I think that with both Notts Uni and Trent in Nottingham maybe all the schools are pretty much covered ;) Not that Derby is great i think, but a little less shooting there.
