Hi all, Just looking for some advice please. I’m a 27 year old fully qualified teacher of music at secondary school level and have taught for a few years in various schools in England and in Northern Ireland (where I’m now based). However I have always felt from a young age that my passion lies with art and I am desperately trying to get information about what I would need to do in order to become an art teacher instead. Unfortunately I was unable to study Art and Music together for my GCSE’s which left me in the position of only picking one- a decision which I have regretted since. I am truly truly passionate about art and although I hold nothing but a ‘best at KS3 level’ award for it I have done a lot of night classes such as watercolour/ dress making/ upholstery/ stained glass etc. I am prepared to do whatever it takes to make this passion a reality and I just want to know where to start. Do I have to do a GCSE/A Level/ Bachelors Degree in art in order to become an art teacher and does my PCGE still stand to me or would I have to do something similar again? I would ideally like to do any required courses in the shortest time possible and complete them in Northern Ireland (i.e. I don’t want to spend around seven years going from GCSE level upwards again) and I would be delighted to hear of any suggestions you may have, however I fully understand that hard work and dedication is required and I’m prepared to give it a shot! Thank you and I’d be so grateful for any advice.
