Currently doing my PGCE in English and I'm considering what to do in the next academic year, so long as I pass. I have a background in EAL, which is something which I really enjoy and feel that I'm quite good at. I taught abroad for three years. Now, I'm teaching English at a post-primary school and I can't say that I'm enjoying it... The poetry, drama, novels... I also see a lot of senior teachers getting burnt out from their workloads in the public schooling system. I just can't get the same enjoyment out of this as I did teaching people how to speak English. I would ideally like to start working in an EAL department, preferably abroad in Europe somewhere. I'm not British and I don't know if I want to work in the UK in the future... But it seems to me that career prospects and pay are far better as an English 'literature' kinda teacher. A lot of EAL work in the UK seems to be part time or paid on an hourly basis. Advice?
