I graduated with a PGCE in PCE 2014 hoping to teach art in a FE college I have BA hons 1st class in Fine Art and an MA in Fine Art. I have not found any work in FE except a 2 hr per week adult recreational class that has not run as it did not reach the enrollment requirement of the college. Had I been teaching this course I would have been financially worse off than no job but I was prepared to do it to build up my CV. The FE sector is suffering severe cutbacks and I believe this is the reason for the scarcity of jobs. I have recently been applying for jobs in secondary, aware that I do not have QTS, and that the QTLS process involves having employment to start with. However in a conversation with an agency yesterday it became apparent that jobs for NQTs in secondary are given to people with PGCE in secondary and my only option is to work as a cover supervisor outside of my own subject specialism for half the pay of a teacher. This is very bad news indeed as I took out the student loan and also have gone into debt for smart clothes for interviews, many books, and art materials for my subject research. Do I have any comeback against my university for this loss, or could I even take the government to European Court for the policies that have robbed me of my money and livelihood? Is there such a thing as a conversion course from PCE to Secondary and where would I find it? Or can you offer any other advice please?
