How to start career in FE Teaching after studying in India

    I am interested to start a career in teaching at a FE/HE level and need some advice which i am hoping someone would be able to help me with.

    I recently completed my PhD in English from India. Before that, i have done my MPhil (Translation studies) , BEd (English) and Master in English. All of my qualifications have happened in India and I have got my degrees certified to be UK equivalent by NARIC.

    Visa wise, I am here on a dependent visa to my husband who is a UK citizen. My visa allows me to freely work and study across UK.

    My questions are: -
    1. What is the path for a non UK / non EU person to start a FE/HE level teaching career in UK
    2. What roles can i apply for now if i need to prepare towards teaching at a FE/HE level
    3. Do i need to do any trainings/certifications to start my teaching career?
    4. Would volunteering at universities / schools help me with my application? Where do i find relevant volunteer opportunities
    I would be really grateful if you could answer my questions and help me shape my career. Thank you

    You can just apply to teach in FE. Anyone can. I don't think you have any qualifications suitable for HE though, unless you are applying to do admin or something?

    no, don't bother, there are no such voluntary positions anyway.
