Organising Portfolio so that it shows development....

    Hello everyone (and Merry Christmas!)

    I have a PGCE interview in January and they have asked me to organise my portfolio so that it tells a story of my development in art and design since leaving school. I need to give a 10 minute presentation on it also. The thing is, at the moment, it is just full of pieces that show what kind of work I do and I really am not sure how to go about showing 'development'. Not much of my uni work is to hand.

    Any ideas/tips? Any would be much appreciated!

    Many thanks,

    Sophie.

    Put whatever you have in chronological order; identify gaps and fill them (e:g; the college work). Then weave a narrative around the work from start to finish, you are telling the story of your work.

    Thank you for your response. Because I already have a portfolio all laid out nicely, showing a variety of my work and my skills, I was thinking that I could possibly leave that as it is but do my presentation as a Powerpoint (showing images of my work up on screen). I would find this ideal as a nice selection of my work will be seen by the university (in my portfolio) but I will tell the story of my 'development' via the Powerpoint. Do you think they would be ok with that? Many thanks.
