    Hi everyone!
    My little family needs to move from Oz to Scotland because of my husband's job. I am diploma qualified in early childhood since 2014 and I only have one more semester to finish my Postgraduate Diploma in Early Childhood.
    I have some questions:
    1- Do I have to do any course to work in Early Years in Scotland?
    2- I am working with 4-5 years old atm. Could I work with this group age there with my qualifications?
    3- What will be my qualification there? Cache 3 + PGD?
    4- is there a lot of demand in Early Years teachers? any casual agency?
    Thank you in advance everyone

    Jobs are done through the local council so it depends on where you are going. I think to be employed as a pre schoool teacher eg in a nursery you will need to be registered with the GTCS though I'm not 100% sure about this, you can ask them.

    You will probably have to have your qualifications checked. Are you a registered teacher in Oz?
