Career change- maths teacher looking for a new career

    I’ve been a maths and science teacher for 3 years and really don’t like it. I’ve a first class honors in my Undergrad (BSc) and masters (BEd). I also got very good LC points but not sure that matters now..

    I’m looking to move career but don’t know what to do. I’m thinking management or business but don’t know who would consider employing me since I’ve no business background. I have experience managing summer camps and that’s the height of it! I’ve very good communication, organization and leadership skills as I am a teacher. Any ideas welcome. Feeling down beat that I don’t like my career which I trained 5 years for, but I’ve to be honest with myself. Based in south east

    What's your BSc in??

    Depending on the answer, have you thought about getting into the sciences sectors??

    With a maths/science background, there are opportunities in the pharma sector and possibly in the medical device sectors without any real major commitment to further education.

    You would be starting at the bottom again, and you may take a financial hit (no idea what teachers earn) but wages are pretty good once you get going

    Just saw this was from last year.:rolleyes:
