PGCE or US Teaching Certificate?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I have a question regarding what might be the best option for international school teaching certification.  FIrstly, I am a Canadian citizen but I have no interest in teaching in Canada.  I would like to have a better chance to teach at international schools (not necessarily IB but that wouldn't hurt).  I am not getting a Canadian certification because it's 2 years and upscale 15 - 20 thousand Canadian.  I am interested in doing a distance learning course that will gain me some teaching certification.

In short:  My question is will it be more valueble to do a PGCE to obtain QTS (even though I don't want to teach in the UK)?  Or is any US teaching certification just as valuable to international schools?  It's a bit tricky since I don't want to teach in the UK or in the US but it seems those are the best options for obtaining teacher status.  As I said, in Canada there are no online or affordable options...


Any insight?  


Thank you very much!
