Dear Theo, I was hoping someone might be able to offer some advice. I have just completed my PGCE (post compulsory) 16+ qualification and completed my placement within an art and design department. I also have a degree in the arts. I have been searching for months for work within this area and have even widend my search to further than I had anticipatetd, but still unfortunately cannot find a suitable position. I have contacted many angencies, sent CV's and personal statements to every possible college and sixth form, but still no luck. I have even applied for TA positions but nothing suitable has come up. Does anyone know if I'm missing something out? I look online at every possible website at least once a day and I am really keen to find a teaching position before the start of the academic year. I fear that this is now highly unlikely, but would like to leave no stone unturned. Any advice would be most welcomed, thank you.
