I'm very interested in teaching evening classes in music and media in one of the I.T.'s or CFE's in Dublin. I was told at one CFE recently that any subject can be taught and that there is a set pay given to evening tutors.
I took a similiar course in intro to Music Production some years ago and I'd certainly feel that I could teach a much more comprehensive p/t - evening module than the one I undertook.
So I'm just wondering if anyone could tell me how I would go about this or what I should prepare in advance of contacting the colleges. I'm assuming a qualification isn't always neccessary from what I garnered talking to a porter in my own former college, but either way, I do hold a media production HND and in terms of music, I'm an IMRO member, I've been writing and performing for 20 years and written music for independent shorts even an award winning one etc etc I've also taught english as a foreign language in an academy abroad so I'd be proficient and qualified for what I'm thinking of offering.
But how to go about it? I know the obvious step is to contact the colleges directly but I'd just like to know the lay of the land a little (and know who I should be asking to speak to for example) before blundering in head first and under prepared.
Anyway I'd really appreciate it if any of you with experience of this could give me a little direction.
