    Dear Stephen
    I am considering retrainining in teaching and applying for the PGCE in Art. I gradauted 5 years ago with a degree and masters in History of Art, and have for two years been building up a body of practical art work which I hope will go toward a portfolio at interview (pencil, pastel and oil). While I have experience of youth work and working with young people, that was a couple of years ago and I realise I will need to implement work experience in schools before applying. What other advice can you offer about work experience? Are places for PGCE Art competitive, and what is the demand for Art teachers at present?

    thank you
