AFTER 20 years as a primary teacher I have been seconded to work in industry for a year.
I do not have to take work home. Neither do I have to work at weekends nor during my holiday, except occasionally. I would be happy to work in school on the same basis, even if it means that I have to book my holiday as I do at present.
I get 30 days a year and bank holidays. I work a long day but feel fresher in my free time, which truly is free. It took a while to get used to the new regime but now I am loving it.
