    Im currently a student, just been accepted onto a PGCE starting next year.
    I would like to teach abroad at some point, was just wondering if my PGCE is recognised in other countries or if I would have to 'start over' in a different country
    Any Thoughts?

    Good morning and welcome!

    Most countries have, as does UK, their own regulations for teachers and their qualifications. And, of course, in many countries, language fluency would be an essential. As a rule of thumb, pretty difficult would be my verdict, although there may be exceptions.

    However, the sure-fire way to teach abroad is in one of the very many British-curriculum schools abroad, where English fluency is the requirement, and QTS often essential. You would teach History, Maths or Chemistry just as in a school in the UK.

    I suggest that you go down to the Teaching Overseas forum and browse there for more information.

    Best wishes
