I'm still a Store Manager for Sainsbury's but I'm also studying again - and it is HARRRRRD. :cry:

Working full-time and studying at degree level is the hardest thing I've ever done - will be glad when it's over [only three more months].

If I don't fail (which I don't think since the exams were pretty easy for me), I'll be a "Bachelor Of Laws" in September! :wink:
can't believe it'll already be one year next week since I started working. :o I'm a civil servant at the German Federal Pension Fund and work as an advisor there. My duties are mostly rehabilitation and reduced earning capacity pensions but from time to time I'm also a consultant for other issues. :)

And I love my work so much, it's the right thing for me definitely.

Yeah, working and studying is no joke. For most of my life, I'd been a full-time student, but the last 13 months have seen me juggle work and studies and the results have been disastrous on both ends. Thankfully, it seems that the studies half of the struggle will end soon.

After debating my options I went back to college 3 weeks ago to study to become a Diagnostic Radiographer also known as a Radiologic Technologist or X-ray person in basic terms. I'm a mature student and will graduate aged 30. :lol: :-? I also work as a delivery guy part time and the pay is surprisingly decent as I deliver food in the rich part of town so tips can be very generous sometimes.

Bachelor educational sciences, master social work/social policy, master criminology. Currently restarting master in philosophy. I work as PhD researcher departement educational sciences about ethnic discrimination in schools, mainly inspired by sociology and anthropology, so rather interdisciplinary but that’s quite common nowadays as each discipline on its own falls short to explain social phenomena. Not that i fully master all these disciplines lol, that’s why i get help and guidance :lol:.

^ Did you leave as part of the recent restructure?

Fortunately, I left about 15 months ago before all of the restructures and it was the most splendid thing I ever did. I will never go back to a life like that.

Yeah I saw my potential redundancy package, took it and ran to the hills. I genuinely think it’s one of the most unnecessarily stressful jobs.

I completely agree, I don't think you understand that line of work unless you've done it. :lol:

The level of challenge I used to get around financials was crazy, you'd think it was my own business.

So I am still a teacher and this year became a "Beamter" which means that my employer is the state and that I cannot be fired anymore - ever.

I also get the highest level of payment (A13)... I am currently teaching:

English - class 6
English - class 8
Maths - class 4
Science - class 4
English - class 4
DaZ - class 7

I've already given the following courses:

.- 2 rounds of HIstory class 8
.- 2 rounds of English class 5 and 6
.- 2 rounds of English class 7
.-1 round of History class 5
.- 1 round of DaZ class 6

and further elementary school classes; English (3) and German (3)

I prefer teaching teenagers. But I've become the class teacher of a 3rd grade since 2017.

DaZ means : German as a Second Language.

At this point I can teach EVERY school subject.
