Dear Graeme, I have a question regarding the best way for a non EU citizen to gain QTS in England. My partner would like to train to be a primary school teacher so he cant teach in the UK, he has a degree in Engineering from a University in the US so has maths/science based degree. He is currently living in the US but his intention is to move to the UK when I we married and through this he would have a work visa for the UK. We have seen from doing research that there seem to be 3 options for him to get his QTS for the UK: 1.Graduate Teacher Programme 2.PGCE 3. If he trains to be a teacher in the US then he could get work as an unqualified teacher and then hopefully find an employer who would let him train for his Overseas Teacher Training certificate. My questions are : -Would him being American and having no knowledge of the UK education system pose a problem to him getting employment at a school for a GTP-would he be put at a disadvantage as he is not British? -Is it difficult to get a school to employ one on a GTP? -Is it more likely that he would be able to get a school to take him for a OTT? -Is there an advantage of having a PGCE over a GTP? I hope this makes sense. Many thanks for any help.
