Hi there, I am considering a career change to primary school teaching and am looking for some advice. I have a BA and a couple of years experience working within museum education (ages 3 to teenagers, including SEN and some outreach work within schools though mainly museum based). For the past 2 1/2 years or so I have been working as a Pastry Chef, but am now really keen to return to my earlier career in education. I understand that my preferred route into this, the GTP, is highly competitive to get onto and obviously I am currently working full time, and would find it difficult to gain large amounts of school based experience at the moment. Would the best idea therefore be to try and find a teaching assistant role first? What levels of qualifications/experience would be necessary for this? Thanks in advance for your help and advice!
