    I have recently being trying to get on a PGCE physical education course to teach at secondary school level but I am finding it hard to successfully get on a course.
    I have always wanted to teach in saudi once i qualify and have gained QTS, now I am thinking about applying for a PGCE but to teach post education 16-18 year olds. If I have this qualification will I still be able to teach in Saudi Arabia in a few years time??
    Thanks for any help

  5. Hi Opeel

    I would suggest you to go on the website for the ministry of education of that country where you can contact the resource person by email. I think he will be in the best position to advise you also you can clarity all your queries.

    Having lived/worked in Saudi for 4 years I can see no reason at all why anyone would want to be there, unless they have secured a big fat salary or it is your last option for work. Most of the moneyed Saudis spend 4 months of the year outside the country which tells you what they think of the place too.
