Greetings! I've had this query for a while now, perhaps the beautiful community can finally help get me answers. Every single school in Dubai requires something called a PGDE or PGCE, which is a UK based qualification to teach. Unfortunately none of the universities actually offer that here. Instead they offer something called a " Professional diploma in teaching" or a " Professional teaching diploma". Yes the wording sounds similar but I haven't gotten any clarity on if they have the same value? Can anyone well versed with these teaching qualifications shed light on this? I don't want to waste a year on a course only to get rejected by Gems schools because it's not a " UK Qualification". Thanks in advance!
