Transfer from primary to secondary?

    I am a primary teacher - qualified 5 years - who wants to transfer to secondary art teaching. Does anyone have any idea how I could go about this? The advice is varied and conflicting depending on who you talk to! I have previous experience, 7 years working as an art therapist working with secondary age pupils. Should I approach my current primary head teacher, speak to the council direct, or apply for art teaching jobs and see how that goes? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Not necessarily in any order...

    1. Go part-time if you can afford it at the Primary and then do some Supply as Secondary
    2. Look for Middle School Opportunities
    3. Retrain
    4. Apply anyway and see what happens
