That school I currently work at is perfect with family and totally manageable, problem is my PGCE is wrong (secondary) and if I want to teach (primary) (currently TAing) I'll need to redo my PGCE. I'd be prepared to have the hassle for a couple of years if it is workable.
unfortunately not to work in Germany. I have now plenty of primary experience. However, without a paper qualification proving that I have studied and learnt all about primary teaching I cannot get legal approval to teach in Primary in Germany.
noblegiraffe,you're right of course. Unfortunately the German equivalent is 4 years FT, jumping naked through fiery hoops backwards whilst reciting all the course books word for word. Or something like that. It's super super difficult, even for Germans, so in German and 4 years and FT it's just not at all an option for me.
Thanks for your help and the links lougle. I saw Sunderland, but discounted it as I read it was FT, but will call Sunderland on Monday and see what they say.
