Dear Theo, I am a 44 year old British citizen with 22 years experience teaching English overseas. I entered teaching via the ESOL route and then obtained my teaching Diploma in ESOL (level 5) Six years ago I moved into the International education sector initially as an EAL teacher teaching IGCSE English 2nd language within an international school following the British Curriculum. I then moved to teaching IGCSE English 1st language and English language A/S and A level alongside providing support for subject teachers teaching KS2 and KS3 to non native speakers. In 6 years of teaching students some of whom have been SEN's and 2nd language speakers, I have never had a student obtain less than grade C in their examinations across the levels (IGCSE English 1st, English 2nd, A/S and A level.) After a few years I was asked by the school to take on more of a management role as academic coordinator in combination with part time teaching duties. I am currently looking into QTLS and continuing with an MA in education and linguistics. I have never worked in the UK but am starting to look at the possibility of this in the future. I would appreciate any advice/feedback on my chances of gaining employment.
