iPGCE enough?

Discussion in 'English' started by beanzy88, May 18, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    Quick question!

    My husband, about to complete his English degree through the University of London International Program, is thinking of doing the iPGCE course through Nottingham University as we live in Thailand. He wishes to teach English to secondary school students at an international school over here. My query is this: would an iPGCE be enough to teach English at an international school in Thailand? Apparently this qualification doesn't 'register you for QTS'.

    Any help or advise on who to ask would be great.

    Is there no one who can advise you in a Thai school?

    Needless to say, you'd struggle with accreditation at (m)any schools in UK, should ever decide to move back too. I would see what the school you want to work in says, as it would be more of a passport for them (by the sounds of it) then any specific qualification worth taken to work in secondary schools elsewhere.

    I started a thread on this on the Teaching Overseas forum. From what research I've done, it would be acceptable in most schools in Thailand although worth asking the school directly if you have one in particular in mind.
    Coming back to the UK would be overcome by asking for an assessment-only route to QTS - that's if you'd ever want to return of course...
