I'm about to go into a round of applying for English teaching positions and a PGCE. The thing is my degree was in Film and TV Studies, which is an acceptable degree for English teaching, but it's been a long time since I've done any English language in the technical sense (I finished my degree 2 years ago). I do have an A-Level in English language and I got an A, so I'm pretty good at it, but I'm just looking for some sort of free online course that will remind me of everything I already know (I could correct any sentence you give me, but give me a sentence and tell me to identify it as present perfect or whatever, and I'll go blank). Does anyone know of any decent websites?
It's no big deal as far as your command of English is good enough to be accepted as an English teacher's generally!
Go get your hands on a few English grammar books to get familiar with grammar terminology and read briefly about the teaching methods. You'll be on a roll when you get yourself in action.
You have a pretty good background to be a very successful English teacher!

Or you could order a basic grammar book from Amazon (or Amazon Marketplace, if you don't mind second hand). A good basic brush up is Michael Swan Practical English Usage.
