Hi I am new to this forum but am hoping that someone may be able to help me. I have BA (hons) degree in Performing Arts and in the late 90's went to work as a classroom assistant in a private school in the UK, by the end I was teaching within the classroom. In 2005 my husband & I moved to Cyprus and I got another teaching job in a private school. I am now a deputy head but does anyone know of any way of gaining teaching qualifications outside the UK? I have considered the Open University but each module is about £1500. I would always teach in a private institution but we may decide to move to another country e.g. United Arab Emirates and am not sure whether experience will counter qualifications. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions, thanks in advance for you help. pbdance.
