    I am interested in doing a career within Art and Design, which is why I’m taking a Level 3 BTEC course in September at Shrewsbury College! 😁

    It’s always been a dream of mine to become a Fashion designer and now I have the opportunity to do it! Hopefully I get the grades needed in order to do it! 🤞
    Well done, good luck, fingers crossed! I'm sure you'll get the grades. Art and design in general is so creative.

    They're our only clear way of communication as body language doesn't really work. I prefer English and writing really but I still really like languages. Which is your favourite?

    Thanks, just planning what I intend to be a TV show to send to BBC writers room when I'm old enough and have another idea which I could also send, will make sure I follow your advice. I enter writing completions when I can; once I got through to the second round of 1000 words and got poetry and short stories published with Young Writers, bit aspire to do better for that. Do you enter writing competitions? I'll take your advice both about writing and teaching 😀
    I do enter competitions occasionally, but it's often tricky with age restrictions and some make you pay!!!! I've never won one but it's worth the experience anyway 😂 when you don't quite have enough time writing or you basically cba I've been told to read as exposure to as many different types of writing will help 😊 and just google tips from Pinterest and make inspiration boards if you don't already- Pinterest is my best friend 😂
    As for teaching, there two types of courses which are Gtp and pgcse, gtp I think is the one you get paid for but it's worth searching the pros and cons of both and choosing which ever sounds the best! My mother was made to do both which was absolute hell so I recommend you stay away from combined courses like that!! happy to answer anything you want to ask 👍

    Personally I want to be an infants/ reception teacher in primary school. What about you guys? Just curious 😀😁
    At the moment, I want to be a primary school teacher too
    ever since I did work experience at one and loved it! I was in a year 2 class

    My back-up plan is to do something in mental health such as psychology or psychiatry.

    I am in year 11 just about to take my exams and I want to become a primary school teacher mostly because I loved my work experience in a primary school. I am planning to take Psychology A-level, Politics & Government A-level and Health & Social Care BTEC at college because I want to keep my options open. If I don't go into primary school teaching, my back-up plans would be working in mental health and politics if that doesn't work out either.
