Hello everyone, I am a fully qualified teacher in Bavaria, Germany. My subjects are English, Religious Education and School Psychology and I teach at the most difficult kind of secondary school (ages 11-18), the type that leads right to university here. And I am native of Germany. I am thinking about moving to England to teach there and I know that I need to obtain QTS. I was told that QTS is not connected to certain subjects then, which sounds unrealistic to me. So basically that would mean that even though I don't have any formal training in teaching German, being a native speaker, schools would still hire me. Does anyone have any experience concerning that? Is it possible to teach one's native language without formal training or is some kind of training required? Also, would schools hire me as an English teacher, even though I am not a native speaker? Being a school psychologist in Germany, I can do counselling at schools. Would this be possible in England too? Thank you very much!
