    How long?
    Is it worth it?
    What does it entail?
    What benifts in life (in Thailand) will there be in having a PGC, really?

    or any info' at all please guys?

    I know next to nothing about all this...

    ^Woops should be PGCE in the title sorry

    Don't know about that mate... but there're distance PGCE courses available from what I've heard. I'm not clued up on this, but a google search will help you out

    What is the PGC? Is it the same as PGCE?

    You can do a PGCE with the Aussie Uni in Victoria I think
    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.

    There's a 'distance' PGCE offered by the University of Sunderland and, I think, also the University of Nottingham. Google them. It's not quite the same as the PGCE in the UK in that the 'distance' one won't lead automatically to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK. But, if you don't intend/want to return to the UK this may not matter to you.

    Isn't a PGCE basically worthless without QTS ? Might as well do a PGDE.

    Ok Im taking a PGCEi with Nottingham University
    It cost 3000 quid plus or minus a few hundred quid depending on hpw many people in your school are taking it.
    it lasts 8 months or up to 15 depending on your work load.
    It counts a 3rd towards any masters degree in uk (which in my opinion holds someway to keep its credentials along with uk testing and price).
    Starts in October each year.
    Its in response to International schools not finding enough qts teachers willing to stay longer than 1 year in thailand.
    over 70 people applied this year and I expect more next year with a lot of us obtaining international school considerations this year.

    I am Thailand resident and unable to attend any UK based classroom experience that most (all that I have seen anyway) of the online PGCE courses require. Do any knowledgeable posters know of a PGCE (or equivalent) that is available without having to leave Thailand ?
