I have some very exciting news: I’ve just been offered a place on the Art & Design PGCE (teacher training course) at Cambridge University! I am THRILLED to receive my offer, and can’t wait to start my studies in September! Approximately 2/3 of my time will be spent teaching in state schools, then there are the course essays, classes and assignments to complete. It’s going to be a very tough year, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
I love teaching, I love art, and I love nurturing creativity amongst young people… so I feel this is the perfect progression for me to make. I still intend to freelance as an artist and illustrator during holidays and in my spare time, but I’ll have a full teaching timetable to keep me busy for the next year, plus the PGCE assignments and lectures!
I suppose I’d better enjoy these last few months of studio time, before life gets very busy…!
