Welcome to TESOL Planet!
I hold a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) awarded in the UK with a lot of teaching experience, could I find and secure jobs in TEFL/ESOL abroad with this and no TEFL qualification?
Given your PGCE and teaching experience, I believe you would have no problem getting a job teaching abroad. Most schools ask for a TEFL as part of the employment requirement but that also has to do with getting a work permit/visa for teaching. Many of these countries will accept a teaching qualification such as a PGCE in lieu of this.
