    Any P.E teachers here???

    Any P.E teachers here? or do you know someone who is?

    How available.............. or not, are the positions?

    What quals have you got (if they differ from PGCE)?

    Any similarities to what a P.E teacher does in the U.K or wherever your home country is.


    Thanks peeps, stay cool

    many of the PE teachers i know teach in bilingual programs or EPs in private schools, and dont' have any special qualifications aside from owning a spiffy track suit. there's a relatively low turnover because most schools need fewer of these than English teachers, and i rarely see the position advertised but i'd imagine if you go out and do a lot of cold-calling you could turn up a school with a vacancy... or join a school as an EFL teacher and jump at any vacancies that open up, that's how the guys in my school ended up teaching PE.
    Imodium can't stop me.

    And a whistle. The Acme 'Thunderer' with lanyard comes highly recommended by Brian Glover...

    "Bullet" Baxter. That's the look. Danny Kendall's nemesis.

    For anyone without the foggiest idea what anna is on about....



    The PE teachers at the int. school where I worked were either

    a) Hired from overseas with PGCE or equiv. and exp.
    or
    b) Thai.

    Carlton Palmer is working as a sports coach at an international school in Dubai, however, so I suppose if you have achieved a high level in a particular sport this can be waived....

    I knew a PE teacher at a Christian EP. He qualified being Christian.

    Haha thanks mate, some good reading. I love the idea that if you teach P.E you are also apt to the odd "health" session.
