I'm American and came to the UK to do a PGCE. I did part of my ECT year here after the PGCE and got sponsored for a visa by my school, but unfortunately it didn't work out (I failed my first ECT term then had to leave halfway through my second term due to an incident). I'm having to move back to the US now due to losing the visa, and I'm wondering if it would be at all possible to work as a teacher again. I won't be anywhere near a British international school -- would that be the only way I could teach with a PGCE? Has anyone else managed to teach in the states with a PGCE without a completed ECT/NQT induction?

Hi there.

TSR is a UK based forum so I'm unsure if anyone on here can help with your query Nevertheless I'll tag Muttley79 who could offer some form of advice.

Best wishes

Sorry I have no idea how the US system works.

Yeah, I know. But I doubt anyone in the US would know as very few Americans have trained to teach in the UK, so I figured this was my best shot.

I may be completely off but I know a few American teachers (I'm currently overseas). In America aren't teaching licenses through individual states? It could be worth looking for the requirements for a teaching license in the state you'll be moving to and see what's required and if the PGCE alone is enough? I'm really sorry to hear that you lost your visa.
