Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Communication and team skills are probably the most important aspect overlooked.

In energy management, it is not I that saves the energy, but often it is folks on the ground using the equipment.

It is the energy managers job to educate by communication, the importance of doing the right things, savings then come as a result.

Career Progression header image

Most Education graduates go on to teach in secondary, vocational or community and comprehensive schools. The teaching qualification is recognised internationally, and some graduates choose to travel abroad to find employment in other countries.

Art teachers work in a variety of settings – in second-level schools, in further education, with very young children, with adults, in museums and galleries, in prisons and in many other places where education takes place.

Many education graduates choose to continue their specialist art or design area of work, through further study or employment in those disciplinary areas. In some cases, they might decide to return to teaching at a later stage in their lives, knowing that their professional qualification will still be valid.

Art teachers can pursue a range of higher education awards at graduate level, including Masters awards in various aspects of art or education, such as visual art education, special needs, educational management and other aspects of education. Similarly, Joint Honours Education students may choose to develop their art or design studio practice through MA or MFA work in those disciplines.
