Teacher Career Change Success Path

PHASE ONE

Audit & Explore

Financials & Must-Haves

We'll get clear on what you need to earn and what you're not willing to compromise on anymore. This is a key part to ensure you know your "why"!

Career & Values Review

We'll explore your career values and what we can learn from your past career success and stress. By looking at your experiences and values we'll clarify your next steps. 

Skills Audit

Let the fun begin as we audit your skills and start to collate evidence of your awesomeness! This is where you'll start seeing those transferable skills.

Career Pathway Plans

Using our in-house assessments and coaching calls, we'll take your skills, values and must-haves and suggest some aligned paths to explore.

PHASE TWO

Search & Rebrand

Effective Job Searching

Searching for jobs is time consuming! We'll show you efficient ways to look for appropriate jobs which align with your skills - saving you time and energy.

Networking & LinkedIn

Most jobs are still secured via referrals and through connections. We'll show you how to use LinkedIn to find even more exciting roles and research new sectors.

Skills-Based CVs

Using our detailed training and resources, we're going to help you create an absolutely show-stopping CV that really emphasises your skills and experiences, while rebranding you for new sectors. 

Persuasive Cover Letters

Capturing effective examples can be tricky - we'll show you how to evidence the impact you've had and demonstrate you meet the job spec confidently. 

PHASE THREE

Shine & Secure

Interview Confidence

Most teachers have never had an interview outside of a school! We'll help you find the confidence you need to walk in with your head held high and connect with your interviewers.

Memorable Presentations

Many interviews require a presentation to showcase your ability to communicate to an audience. We'll show you how to create professional and engaging presentations.

Interview Question Types

We want you to be as prepared as you can so we'll teach you our signature structure for answering any type of question! You'll even have time to practice answering with other members. 

Salary/Benefits Negotiation

You're making this move for greater flexibility so we're going to help you confidently negotiate to secure the benefits and salary you deserve.

Testimonials


Jo’s coaching has inspired me to start taking action and to make changes in my life. After just a few sessions, I am feeling far more positive and excited about a future beyond the classroom. Talking to Jo is a real tonic; she is always calm, cheerful and encouraging. We achieve so much in each session and I come away with lots of ideas for practical steps to take straight away. She has helped me understand my ‘value’, beyond just being a teacher. I have so many ideas I now want to explore.

Katherine

Primary Teacher

I feel lucky to have found Jo, someone who really understands the world of teaching yet she has a vision and knowledge of a life and career beyond teaching. At a time when I have felt lost and overwhelmed she has already helped me to feel positive and excited about the possibilities for my future beyond the classroom.

Jo

Primary Teacher

The combination of course content, coaching and comprehension that Jo provides to mainly ex-teachers (or those planning to transition out) is extraordinarily effective in dealing with both the nitty gritty of researching and applying for a position, or starting up on your own, whilst ensuring that a completely embraceable and empathetic holistic approach supports your well-being along the way. I cannot recommend her services highly enough to those of you who are transitioning after many years and/or need to resolve any associated residual issues.

Hear from some of our fabulous members as they explain how the support and resources of the Adventures After Teaching Academy have been invaluable in mapping their journey out of the classroom.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We get asked this a lot... and yes, the Academy was created for teachers and leaders just like you. We'll help you explore your career values, skills and experiences and support you to explore different roles outside of the classroom. We do this not only through our training videos and resources, but also through our live group Zoom calls where we share jobs specs, CVs and LinkedIn profiles to discuss - we even have "Career Ideas" calls dedicated to navigating job sites!

The Academy is changing.... from August 2024 you can access Academy support for as long as you need - be that a term or a full year. We're changing to a monthly membership to meet demand and build capacity within the team. You'll also have the opportunity as an Academy member to book 1:1 Teacher Career Change sessions covering career change ideas and exploration, CV reviews and writing, interview preparation, confidence building. 

Life happens and most of us are juggling a lot. We have a comprehensive calendar with weekly live calls - you simply book onto the sessions you want to attend. The majority of sessions are recorded so you can always watch them on replay in our private course library area. 

NOT AT ALL! In fact, this membership is built for getting you ready to leave with confidence and control. You'll also find the weekly support helps you manage the stress of the classroom as you plan your exit. I recommend one to two terms to plan your exit if possible. It can be done quicker if needed!

The one thing we all want more of is time... Firstly, this is not a course you can fall behind with - it's for you to do in your own time. Secondly, the videos within the course areas are around 10-20 mins long, each with accompanying resources. Some take longer than others (for example writing a personal statement will take longer than an email) but by following this success path, you'll save hours and hours by knowing the most efficient ways to tackle each step of the journey.

You have a 14 day money back guarantee - if for any reason you do not find the support and materials fulfil your needs, you can email me for a complete refund.

Testimonials


I came into coaching as I was torn between staying in teaching and leaving to work full-time on the baby class franchise I had purchased. I was being pulled in numerous directions which was leaving me feeling tired, confused and unable to get the head-space to make any decisions. I feel immeasurably more positive about the future. I have already gained an insight into what my ‘problem’ areas are, have changed some behaviours and have clarity about my future path. I have chosen to stay in teaching AND build my business but on my terms and at my pace. It’s been revelatory so far and I’m looking forward to our next session and to the future.

Anna

Secondary English Teacher

I had been signed off by the doctor with ‘work related stress.’ I searched for a counsellor to work with during this difficult time. However, I struggled to find one that I could relate to...until I found Jo! I started to understand the emotional grief I was going through, and also to connect with others who were struggling with similar issues. It’s been so good communicating with someone who has experience within the system, who understands the challenges and constraints. Her coaching and mentoring skills are supportive, challenging in the right places and also very motivating. I have been supported on my journey through burnout; towards moving forwards, making informed rational decisions and taking action to support me onto the next adventures!

Susan

SEN Teacher

Teaching is, without a doubt, one of the most stressful professions out there. Since I have started coaching with Joanne, I wonder how I have managed such a stressful profession without this sort of guidance for so long. She creates a safe space for me to reflect and tap into my intuition. Joanne’s experience in the Education sector means she has accrued the wisdom to create a bespoke coaching service for teachers: she is particularly skilled at identifying typical self-sabotaging ‘teacher’ mindsets. When she shines a light on these, it leads me to a more aligned trajectory. Every teacher deserves a coach like this.
