As you may know I am in the process of relocating to the UK and currently I am looking to short out how to expertise my work experience in order to have a better luck on the UK's "job market". Last night I had a chat with the Ministry of Education of the UK as I was looking to find out if I need a QTS based on my qualifications and experience. The big news is for those who posses the golden card from Kurusapha. The representative of the MOE gave the following reply to my question.
" ...if you are fully qualified as a teacher in Thailand, you are able to teach in England without gaining QTS for up to four years if you wish to do so. After those four years were up, however, you would need to gain QTS. You can do this either by completing ITT, which you could do at any stage, or by completing Assessment Only (AO) after you had been a teacher in two schools in England - so long as you meet the entry requirements, which are the same for both options: GCSEs at grade C or above in maths, English and science (science only being required for primary) as well as a bachelor's degree (ideally 2:2 or above)".

I believe that more or less this treatment is given from all the EU countries so if you think a come back maybe now you have a motive!

I've gotten more years out of my license in China than I had in Thailand.

Have ASEAN countries formally recognized it?

Greg, please have  a look at the thread I just posted. Should you be interested in working as an English teacher in the German capital, I'd be more than happy to help you.
