From reading the requirements for the invitation letter required for the Z visa, my school has asked me for copies of my degree and “tefl certificate or teacher licence” to be notarised from the embassy of China (which i think refers to the process of legalisation). If anyone has done this before, what is regarded as the “teacher licence”? Is this a PGCE certificate, or the letter from the National College confirming I am a qualified teacher? Also regarding a criminal record check, what is acceptable? An International Child Protection Certificate? Or just an ACRO police certificate? Or will my current DBS certificate count? Also, does this just have to be notarised, or sent to the embassy and go through the same legalisation process as the degree certificate etc.? Many thanks for any help that people can offer.
