Hi All! I am looking into applying to teach in the USA next year and I am wondering if anyone has any advice?? I am a British Citizen and am currently completing my PGCE year so by June/July I'll have completed my PGCE and will have Qualified Teacher Status. I am aware that teaching abroad might push back my NQT year but I am ok with that. I am wondering: Is there anything I can be doing now that might make an application look more attractive? Have any of you moved to the USA to teach? How did you do it and was it difficult? I have looked into teaching with companies/groups such as Participate or Nord Anglia British International Schools - they both say I will need a minimum of 2 years' teaching experience. I have sent emails off to them but am waiting for a reply - does anyone know if this 2 years' teaching experience is at all waive-able? Are there any other routes to teaching in the USA that people are aware of and might be able to point me in the right direction on? Any other information is highly appreciated!! I have spent so much time looking on the internet, however with differing ages of articles I am finding it hard to see what the current situation is and any specific advice as to how to make it happen. I have seen people that have travelled and taught abroad after completing their PGCE years so I feel it must be possible but I don't know where to start! Thanks in advance!
