International (IB) School Experience - transferable across continents?

    I am currently working as an EAL teacher with MA TESOL and assessing my next steps,

    Looking at EAL teaching in an IB School in Asia is feasible as many of the job offers ask for 'PCGE or equivalent' (questionably MA TESOL and PGCE are different but in EAL context it's debatable). I digress.. So if I were to accept a position in an IB school as EAL teacher, would this experience count in the EU international school circuit?

    In effect, would these two years spent in an Asian IB School be a waste of two years, professionally speaking, or is the experience transferable across continents?

    If I understand your question, yes, definitely transferable.
