Teaching in the Netherlands

    HI. I have a question regarding which qualifications I need in order to work in international schools in the Netherlands. See, I have lived in several countries growing up, but by nationality I am Dutch. I do not know Dutch at a native level, only English. I want to teach in schools here as I live with my partner in The Netherlands, but because I had to choose a study in English, i could not opt for teacher training courses at the time. I have tried to get a job here in a school but because I do not have the qualifications I cannot. I was wondering if there was an online PGCE equivalent I could do in order to gain credentials to teach here. I am not wanting to go abroad for training, but I cannot study in Dutch either (I am B2 in Dutch, and although I technically an, I have tried and it has been too difficult to learn in Dutch), thus it need to be in English. I have been researching an not finding any course that I can take which would allow me to qualify as a teacher. Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

    My belief is that if you can get a school to 'sponsor you', ie allow you to do your practice in their school, then you can do a iPCGE. I have no idea how it actually works but I do know it exists and I know teachers who have completed them.

    The international schools hire people without Dutch qualifications. Maybe speak with them?
