Excellent news, really excellent! I suggest two things, if you have time. First go to the Welcome thread on JobSeekers,open it and read the 2 clickables about interviews. These will help you prepare intelligently. Secondly - can you get together a portfolio? As you are an artist, this is quite important to show both your talents, and those of any children that you have taught. Sit your own kids down after tea one day if necessary! Very best of luck to you. _____________________________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
