    Hi everyone, this might be a bit of a long shot but I thought I’d ask anyway.
    I’m currently studying illustration and have recently been thinking about future career options. I was wondering if anyone know what the process is to become an art school tutor?
    Note- I’m not interested in primary or secondary school teaching, only college or uni level (preferably uni).

    TIA!

    Why not ask your tutors how they got to where they are? For most uni teaching, the route is PhD then a few PostDoc positions before hopefully securing something a bit more permanent. However, for art, this process might be quite different.

    Most further education (college) teaching posts want you to have experience in industry, before teaching, as the teaching is more vocational. Look at job adverts in this sector, and see what sort of qualifications and experience you are looking for. You can also do a "post compulsory" PGCE which would probably help you find employment in this sector.

    A friend of mine is a resident artist in a local college, she has had her own business in a specialist art subject for years before she was offered the job. She then did her fe training during her job.

    Another friend is an art history lecturer. She has a PhD.
