I'm new to this forum, so hi! I would be really grateful of some advice! I am in my 5th year as a Primary School teacher - a career that I fell into after doing quite a general degree. I have tried to make a go of it, but really lack any ambition as my heart isn't in it. I've always regretted not doing a more vocational degree in Art and Design. After much thought I've decided its time to try and make a career change and would love to get into graphic design. Clearly I need to get some good training in order to achieve this, but I can't afford to do another undergraduate degree - it would take too long and be too expensive. I have found lots of HNDs and HNCs which I could study part time. I'd like to know if employers generally respect these qualifications, or whether they really require a higher level of qualifications? Any advice you could give me would be fantastic, thanks!
