In Response To: PGCE Qualified - need TEFL? (Roxy)

It u s e d to be that those c o u n t r i e s only wanted you to have 'a d e g r e e in s o m e t h i n g' , and if you had a c t u a l t e a c h e r t r a i n i n g t h e n t h e s c h o o l you a p p l i e d to a l m o s t wet t h e m s e l v e s in e x c i t e m e n t and f o u g h t over you.

I'm not sure if both coun t r i e s , but c e r t a i n l y one has now a d d e d the 'has a tefl cert' r e q u i r e m e n t to the q u a l i f i c a t i o n s area for the v i s a ; I don't k n o w if that can be c o v e r e d/s u p e r s e d e d by having a PGCE (though it is not in the u s u a l P r i m a r y/E l e m e n t a r y or S e c o n d a r y/H i g h s c h o o l e d u c a t i o n )...but if not then this 'tefl' r e q u i r e m e n t does not a c t u a l l y s p e c i f y which type of cert...you can still do an o n l i n e mini one and have it count.

But yes, it is not as e f f e c t i v e in the a c t u a l classroom as a CELTA or Trinity Cert.
