      Thanks for link and advise.

      Did you do the GTP in the UK then? If not, what path did you take?

      If it makes you feel any better - I know of several Aussie teachers in the UK who have gone to uni in Oz, taught very successfully in Oz for many years, and cannot register in the UK because they don't have.....Maths GCSE (not accepting the fact that Oz don't do GCSEs) The hoops coming back this way are far worse - its just the UK has an education system that lies about courses and qualifications (just look at the Level 2 courses situation) - imho they should make it very clear when taking up a place on a GTP course that its only recognised in England and Wales, a complete con (cue massive political rant here usually, but I'm far too knackered at the mo lol)..
      Our 33,000km ish trip around Oz - have a look here (also good for tips on equipment and holiday places ) Our moving and living here blog :)

Don't know whether the latter would be recognised in SA though.

      Any advice guys?

      I don't know if this will help Heather - http://www.decd.sa.gov.au/hr/pages/j...chervacancies/ - http://www.teachinginsa.sa.edu.au/pa...me/university/ - I do remember that there were a few ads in the paper which were looking at graduates in particular disciplines (eg science) who were being offered short courses to qualify them to teach, mainly in the secondary area I think, but again I don't know the status or of it would be of any use to you.
