Dear Graham, several questions about the best way to get into teaching

Discussion in 'Thinking of teaching' started by MPSM, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. <font size="3">I was thinking of becoming a foreign languages teacher in the UK and I was wondering which qualification is more valued in the UK: the GTP or the PGCE. Is it true that overseas qualifications are not very well regarded by British schools?</font><font size="3">I was also told that achieving a position in the GTP programme is very difficult since competition is very high. Do you have a rough estimation of how many people apply for it and how many are enrolled in the programme each year? </font><font size="3">I was also wondering if you know if the current economic crisis is severly affecting the number of positions available in teaching compared with previous years.</font><font size="3">Thank you very much for your help.</font> Best regards,

    Mar&iacute;a P
