What qualifications do I need?

QTS is normally required in order to take up a teaching post in any of the following settings in England and Wales.

If you don’t have QTS right now you can still get a job in a UK school. Schools in the UK understand that teachers who were trained in other countries can offer a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience to their students.

If you trained to teach in Australia, the USA, Canada or New Zealand, you can apply for QTS here in the UK. This can be done online or by post, and if your application is approved you will be issued with documentation confirming QTS.

In addition, schools now have more freedom than in previous years to employ unqualified teachers. Unqualified teachers may choose to apply for QTS based on existing qualifications and experience, or work towards QTS while they are practicing, depending on their circumstances.
