hi what qualifications are needed to be an english teacher in schools/FE. I have a CELTA and DTLLS but at 50 have only taught abroad (Africa) and have barely taught in the UK- A few ESOL classes (adult learning). I've got very little knowledge of the UK curriculum and OFSTEDs protocol. I'm also concerned that the old style chalk and talk is no longer relevant as the glitzy smartboard is now the de rigueur of the classroom . I have a media degree in film theory and cultural studies but no specific english lit qualification or QTS. Any thoughts??
