Hello Expats & Teachers,

I am from the US and living in China working & living with my Filipina girlfriend. We're about to have a baby shortly. I'm debating whether to change industries into teaching. My question is, as a foreigner (US), can I get a state teaching certification in Philippines and use it in international schools abroad? We plan to marry and she will also return back to school to get a 2nd bachelor in education and also obtain her teaching license so we can both teach together abroad in international schools as I mentioned before. I was just thinking maybe classes/licensing might be cheaper going through PI instead of going back to states to get certified. I'm sure it's probably far fetched idea, but I'd appreciate any feedback.

Cheers in China

Hello,

There isn't a state certification in the Philippines. It is national.
I'm not sure about what the answer is to the specifics of your question but here is the link for LET exam information.

Thanks for the link, but didn't see anything regarding foreigners getting nationally teacher certified. Instead, I will plan to enroll into the TeacherReady online alternative teacher certification online through the state of Florida. With that said, I wonder if I can fulfill the teaching practicum requirement at one of the international schools or public schools? I guess the requirement is that the mentor that overseas your teaching practice must be state or nationally licensed teacher.
This would be great as I would have time to spend with my girlfriend/future wife and her family.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hello Aaron,
My Filipina wife and I couldn't figure out from the web site what the requirements were for foreigners.
In any event I hope things work out for both you and your lady.
