Hi, I’m just wondering if many of you have worked abroad teaching English without being a certified teacher at first and then used this experience to come home and get certified. Was the experience abroad considered useful at all? I’ve been teaching in China for 3 years, I have an unrelated degree (law) and CELTA. I’m thinking about coming back to either do a PGCE or one of the routes to QTS in the UK. After teaching for 3 years I know it’s what I want to do for a career. I haven’t seen much on this particular topic so any information or advice would be welcome.
