Hi all, My girlfriend and I have given a lot of thought into international school teaching in the past while. We are both from Northern Ireland, 28 and 27 years old respectively with Bachelor's in History and Law and Master's in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies and Human Rights Law. We are TESOL certified (one month, 140 hour course) and have been teaching ESL in Vietnam, Australia and soon South Korea in a variety of settings including public schools, language centres and universities. Our experience is currently 2 and a half years but this will amount to 3 and a half years after our time in South Korea. I would love to become a Secondary History/Social Sciences Teacher at an international school and she would love to teach English. We are aware this will entail getting QTS status (likely a PGCE) and some experience at QTS level. My route would be relatively straight-forward; getting on a History PGCE but since my girlfriend's degree is in Law, she has been advised that doing an English Master's is the only way for her to secure a spot on an English PGCE. This will be costly and time-consuming and while not ideal, is still a potential option. She does have considerable ESL teaching experience. Can anyone give any advice on the most straightforward route for us, particularly in a UK context? Has anyone been in a similar predicament? We are aware of the iPGCE but it does not grant QTS as it is an academic qualification. Other people have said that some international schools hire unqualified teachers, but we are wanting to attain QTS to set us up for a life-long career. Many thanks!
