Hi I'm no expert in the requirements for gaining qualified teacher status in Australia. May I suggest that you contact the Australian Embassy to enquire about their rulkes and regulations. If you wish to teach in the UK then you may as an unqualified (for the UK) teacher for up to 4 years, provided you have a work permit for the UK. Then you must apply to have your status brought to our QTS ststus and this can be done on a UK scheme calle dthe OTT (Overseas Trained Teacher) scheme which is an on-the-job training scheme that allows you to demonstrate that you are meeting our QTS standards. You can fuind details of the OTT scheme at this website: http://www.tda.gov.uk/get-into-teaching/teacher-training-options/overseas-trained-teacher-programme.aspx James
