SCITT route closes doors

I'm a British expat teaching ESL in an academy in Korea. I recently flew back to England to take my DfE numeracy and literacy tests; I passed them both then attended an interview at a University and was accepted onto their PGCE course. I flew back to Korea where I'm still working and booked another return journey to the UK to attend a second interview for a SCITT course which would mean no course fees and a small salary if I am successful. However, I recently read that the SCITT route may not entitle me to work in foreign countries. I would like to teach in HK or perhaps the Middle East so this comes as a bit of a blow especially since I have already booked the flight. Can anyone clarify how hard it will be to get a job abroad if I go the SCITT route instead of the PGCE?
