    Hello everyone!

    Just a quick question that what sort of qualification here in UK the Chinese teacher will need to obtain to teach? As a native speaker who has done PGCE equivalent in China and a MA Applied Linguisctics in UK, I am not quite sure how to be in the status a "Qualified teacher".

    Thank you!

    If you want to teach Mandarin, it's probably worth you applying even though you do not hold "qualified teacher status"; there can't be that many qualified Mandarin teachers, and you might well stand a good chance.
    However there are not that many posts to apply for, and some will be very part-time.

    It will depend on where in the UK you want to teach. If you want to teach in Scotland, look at the General Teaching Council for Scotland website as it has some information for teachers who qualified outside of Scotland. https://www.gtcs.org.uk

    The Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh might also be worth contacting as they have run their own courses and have links with a variety of schools.
