Well done, I taught for 17 years in South Wales, History and Geography, to 11-18 year olds.

I'm a Teaching Assistant (Primary) now, don't think I was when I originally posted. Age group of 9 at the moment. Main subjects are English and Maths, I also suck at maths so find it a bit dull at the moment, the kids are ok though. I told them I drive a Ferrari and now they all want to see it...

I'm considering volunteering to observe a history teacher for a few days a week at the local Secondary all girl's school age (14-18). That's if I'm not arrested and thrown into gaol within the first hour of my arrival.

I'm also a Primary level Teaching Assistant - having retrained after 30+ years in IT. Working mostly with Year 6 (10-11 year olds), with some Year 5 and Year 3 time.

I've come in VIA construction, according to Beeb the economy is still in a downward spiral with construction still the worst hit* so I'm probably doing the right thing. I was offered an estimating position in London the other day with college training/investment thrown in but don't really fancy being stuck in front of a computer monitor for several hours a day for the next 10 years.

What made you change tack with regards to career? Would you consider Secondary? Primary teachers appear to have quite a lot of work. Half term soon though, wouldn't get that in a normal job!

I'm actually well enough qualified to go for a PGCE in ICT, but at 60+, it's not worth it - no-one would think of taking me on. My previous employer was closed down by legislative changes (which I'm not allowed to discuss for legal reasons). At least I feel I'm making a positive contribution where I am now.
