Hello everyone! I am graduating this June with MEng degree and thinking about applying to a PGCE course. I had to completely change my plans due to the pandemic, so I am feeling a bit rushed and need advice/confirmation on whether I am doing the right things. So, my objectives are: 1. teach abroad in different countries (I want to experience living in the Middle East and South-East Asia); 2. teach Mathematics at a high school level (A levels / IB). My plan: 1. Apply and hopefully be accepted onto PGCE Secondary course; 2. Obtain QTS; 3. Do NQT in the UK; 4. Start teaching abroad straight after the NQT year. I am not sure about the following: 1. I am interested in teaching (only) A levels (and equivalent) Maths as the topics are much more interesting and challenging plus students, in general, are at least a bit more motivated to study. So initially, I thought about applying to PGCE Post-compulsory but was told that it would limit job opportunities as many top international schools require PGCE Secondary and that there might even be problems with visa. Furthermore, PGCE Secondary has a wider age range and thus during training I will be able to understand the knowledge students have prior to A levels. However, during the PGCE many students do not get placement in KS5 so during their NQT they are not given A level classes and thus do not have much experience in this area. But my plan is to leave after NQT year and get a teaching job abroad in high school. Do you think I should still apply for PGCE Secondary and when applying for NQT jobs ask for A level classes? 2. I have read many times that it is better to complete NQT year straight after PGCE and do it in the UK. Plus good international schools require at least a year of experience. But is it a good idea to leave the UK after NQT year or is better to have more experience in the UK? And if the latter, what is the minimum number of years I should teach in the UK before applying for jobs abroad? 3. I am a non-UK/EU citizen and English is not my first language (but I did A levels and degree in the UK). Do you think this might be an obstacle when applying for jobs abroad, e.g. schools will not be willing to offer a job or my salary will be lower compared to someone with the UK passport? Please, could you help me with these questions and tell me in general if this all is possible? Thanks!
