Right this is where I am at, I am 26, currently Director of Sport in a school, been teaching for 5 years and have just about had enough of it. Before going into teaching I wanted to go into the army, into the infantry, I looked at going in as an Officer but as things happened after completing my degree 'I fell' into teaching. I need some advice on info with regards to career prospects if I was to go into the army as a private, any info would be useful, (promotion prospects, weather my past experince would increase the rate of promotion.) I am well aware that by doing this route I would take a massive pay cut but this is something I want to do. Any info would be much appreciated, maybe there is someone who has done something similar.
