In the midst of the farce of leaving my job in Thailand and not getting a job in China I learned today that I have been issued with a 5 year Teacher Licence. I now have a photograph of the licence. No doubt the old school wants to do a bit of bargaining before giving me it ... they like to play with my head. Anyhow this would not have been possible without joining the forum and starting on the TPK exam route; that was scrapped. So I decided to go the Nottingham PGCEi route from which I graduated in March this year. The school applied but never provided any information back and I had learned never to ask. Interestingly the validity is 1st July 2016 to 30 June 2021 so presumably the school has been sitting on it - not sure this might just be my incipient paranoia. So I learned today that it was issued. Is there an uptodate link with the KSP site to check these things. Whatever, thanks to Stamp and the others who are doing more to nurture foreign teacher talent in Thailand than the entire education system. Chokers!
