Hi I'm going to qualify in 11-16 Science QTS in March, with a specialism in Physics. My wife and I want to move to Bangkok for a couple of years - her job can move out there, and the idea of teaching internationally appeals to me. We're lucky in that her salary could cover us both for a while in Bangkok if we needed to. We'd like to move out sooner rather than later. I'm not straight out of uni, I'm in my early 30s and am now teaching after a successful 10 year career in an unrelated area. The job situation around my area isn't looking great and there's a lot of competition from people on my own course and the two local universities pouring out people from a PGCE. I know that the ideal would be to complete my NQT in the UK to become fully qualified before moving overseas. But given the cutbacks, apparent scarcity of jobs and competition, I'm not hugely hopeful! Would it be feasible to get a job internationally without having completed my NQT year? Could I move over and settle than start to look for a job while I'm there or would it be impossible without full qualification and UK experience? If I did that, would that prejudice me getting a UK job later given I'd still have to complete NQT? Or would my couple of years overseas give me a better chance given I'd still be on the bottom rung of salary but more experienced? I've done well on the training and I know I could get glowing references (one school all but offered me a job, but didn't have one to offer).
