    I've been trying to figure out what qualification I would need to teach at a uk college level and I've become a little flummoxed by the the whole thing. I've read several different answers about what I would need to do and I'm close to smacking my head against the wall repeatedly, ha! I was really hoping someone here could point me in the right direction or knew whether or not I still need a PGCE to teach at college and whether or not I will need a masters? (some people have said various different things)

    Have a look at job adverts instead of listening to people. Then you'll get info from people who will hire you!
