Hey guys, I know there is hundreds of topics like this one but ive not been able to fully pull the information that I would like from all of them. Hopefully a few experienced teachers out there will be able to give me some advice. Im 21 and Ive just finished a postgraduate BSc Geography course (3 years full time) and will start a PGCE in Geography for Secondary Education this September. Basically im just trying to weigh up my options for when I finish the PGCE to see how many possible doors their are open for me. OPTION 1: I could complete my NQT year asap in England after finishing. OPTION 2: I could take a year out, travel, then come back to complete my NQT year in England a year later seeing that there is no time deadline between completing the NQT year and finishing the PGCE. OPTION 3: I could move back to my home country of Northern Ireland and complete my 'induction year' there? Is this possible or does the induction year have to be completed within England? If I were to complete my 'NQT' year in England, how could I teach in Northern Ireland at a later date? Is my PGCE & NQT qualifications valid at home without doing another induction year in Northern Ireland? OPTION 4: I could complete my NQT year asap in England after finishing and then move to Australia for a few years? On Australia's Visa Bureau site it states that you must: *Have completed study comparable to at least a 4 year full-time tertiary level qualification in Australia (THAT WOULD BE MY 3 YEAR BSC GEOGRAPHY DEGREE?) *Have completed at least 1 year of full-time tertiary level pre-service professional teaching studies related to your nominated teaching occupation included in your studies. Appropriate studies include theoretical and practical subjects with a clear relation to initial teacher education (THAT WOULD BE THE PGCE?) *Have completed at least 6 weeks of supervised teaching practice related to your nominated teaching occupation. You must include evidence of this with your application (THAT WOULD BE MY NQT YEAR?) *Be currently qualified and/or licensed to teach in the country where you obtained your qualifications or where you are currently teaching. You must provide written evidence from an appropriate official teacher licensing or employment authority from the country where you obtained your teaching qualifications or from the country where you are currently teaching (THAT WOULD BE MY NQT YEAR?) Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated if at all possible guys.
