Hey guys. I am considering retraining as an English teacher, but I don't have the subject at degree level. I have a 2:1 in Philosophy BA and I also hold a B at English A-level. I am much more interested in teaching internationally than in the UK, and since some British Council International Schools are now able to deliver NQT induction, I would if possible like to go straight into international teaching. However I am quite worried that my degree will hold me back. I could get accepted onto a PGCE if I top up my knowledge with an SKE, but I am not sure if I'd be able to get a job in an international school as an English teacher without the degree. I've already posted on here about teaching English in the UK without the degree, and it the consensus seems to be that I would not be able to get the more desirable jobs, at least at first. International Schools are, after-all fee-paying schools and I would imagine they would want to hire highly qualified teachers, so not having an English degree might make it difficult or impossible for me to find a job? But, on the other hand I have also heard that some international schools, not being subject to same bureaucracy as British schools, can be more flexible with regards to qualifications? Also, although some British international schools are able to induct NQTs, how many in practice actually hire them? I suppose they would have motivation to take them, as they wouldn't have to pay them as much? And one final question, is it possible to go from teaching in a British international school while qualified with a PGCE to teaching IB? Would I have to retrain again?
