  TAKING MY FAMILY OVERSEAS...
"I am an English teacher of 10 years standing with a wife and young family. We would both like to travel and live abroad for a while and my professional background does not pose a problem in terms of obtaining employment. However, it is a big step to up everything and move away for what will be a reasonably short-term project. Is there anything I can do to ensure that my family donīt suffer in the long term?"

TEACHING AS OPPOSED TO ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS
Q.
What is "PGDE or equivalent" and how does it differ from TESL/TEFL qualifications? I recently saw this in a job advertised for Hong Kong. They were very specific about this. I have the 4 week Cert TESOL and the 6 month Grad Cert in Education (TESOL) and working my way to a Masters in Education (TESOL) in Australia. Is it just a difference in terminology or do you think they meant just something other than the 4 week RSA/Celta/TESOL type course?

A.
I imagine the advertisement was referring to a Post Graduate Diploma in Education. Both PGCEs (certificate) and PGDEs are principally 'teaching' qualifications as opposed to an English language teaching qualification, though there can be a TEFL/TESOL option as a 'major'. They are normally of one year's duration and can be considered to provide more of a basis on the principles of education than other TEFL/TESOL qualifications.
