Hi all, I'm currently on my PGCE and now applying for jobs in UK schools for my NQT year from September onwards. Once I have completed the NQT school year, I plan on applying for a job abroad from September 2012 for a couple of years before coming back to the UK, as this is something I really wish to do before settling down. My question (and worry!) is this: Once I have done the NQT year, leave the UK for a couple of years then come back, will I be seen as a fully qualified teacher? Will this affect my job prospects, or make it advantageous? There are many discussions of teaching abroad before NQT year, but I have yet to find one that answers this!
