    I currently work full time in a management position. I am really keen to get into teaching next year, hopefully the PGDE, however I feel that my current job is restricting my ability to focus on what I want e.g. getting experience etc. (I usually end up working 50+ hours per week). I am considering moving to a non-management role, where I could reduce my workload/hours, to give me more time for such things but I don't know how this would look from an application/CV point of view. What does everyone think?

    Reducing responsibility to focus on something that matters to you doesn't seem like a bad move. It's about managing your life and having a plan and taking steps needed to reach a goal. Explain it as such on your cv and you should be fine.

    If you want to do a PGDE then relevant experience in a school setting will be more important than your current job, assuming that isn't relevant to teaching.
