    Hi I’m hoping someone maybe able to offer me a little advice.

    I have various design qualifications including a HND and First Class BA Hons Degree in Visusl Communication.

    I’ve worked as a designer for 10 years working with with a wide range of clients (both public and private sector) on a range of both print, web and digital platforms.

    I’ve now reached a point in my career where I’m looking for something more rewarding and I feel I could bring so much to a teaching role.

    My question is I don’t really know where to start! I’ve got a young family so I can’t afford to not earn a reliable income whilst studying for a PGCE...?

    Any advice would be gratefully received!

    You will need a teaching qualification but there are a lot of schemes through which you can work while you study such as Teach First. Have a look at this as a starting point.
