Scope for someone new

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by sabahathamid, Feb 27, 2012.

  1. Hi there
    My husband is already in UK and I plan to hopefully join him this Summer.I have been working in some of the top rated prrivate schools in Pakistan for the last 14 years.My experience ranges from teaching to administrative aspects of running a school.
    I have a masters degree in Chemistry and my concern is that if I would be eligible to work in a UK school or not.Actually I have found out that one needs to have a QTS to work as a permanent teacher in UK.I wanted to find out what scope do I have if I wish to teach in a school in UK, maybe not as a permanent teacher but as a part time one....?
    Thanks
    Awaiting a response

    You may need to look into a PGCE or GTP training year. You can work in private schools without QTS or maybe look at Universities? Good Luck!

    This is what the TDA/Teaching Agency/whatever they're called at the moment says about it - TDA site
    Hope that's useful! Sorry for the messy link but I can't access any of the rich-text editing features on my iPad

    managed to edit the link out of the post entirely! You wouldn't think I've got an A Level in ICT, goodness me.
