I have posted on here before as I have (for the last two years) looked at the possibility of teaching overseas. I have been in fulltime teaching for three years now and my subject area is Religious Education and Philosophy. Over the past year I have worked very hard at gaining experience and professional development in the area of SFL or Learning Support. I also have an Undergraduate degree in Psychology which has a specific focus on both Educational and Child Psychology. I have noticed that there are a few vacancies for SFL teachers at various schools abroad, and I am wondering what level of qualifications these schools are looking for? I know that nearly all of the SFL teachers that work in Scotland started out life as a classroom teacher before building up 'inhouse' experience in supporting young people, and I suppose I am now in a similar boat. I got the chance to look at one particular school's website and they (helpfully for me) have indicated what qualifications each of their teachers have. I noticed that every teacher within the SFL department did not have a 'Learning Support' degree or equivalent, but had a teaching degree. Is this usual for overseas schools? Or are they in general looking for more? And would my experiences in Pscyhology have any bearing on my suitablility for a teaching role? Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
