Great News!: I’ve been offered a place at Cambridge University!

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…!

    I am currently going for an interview at Cambridge, and wondered if you could share your experience, the schedule of the day etc. Also did you have to write a synopsis on a text before your interview and a written task on the day? What did that consist of?

    Will be great to get some advice!
