QTLS Results Procedure – Facts and Information

Find out all the answers to your questions about what happens when your Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status results are released.

When will I get my QTLS result?

You will be advised by email of the date your results will be released. Results are released in batches throughout the day via email. You will receive your result by 5pm on the day the results are released.


Your certificate

Once awarded you can request and print off a digital copy of your QTLS certificate via your SET Dashboard.

Your formal certificate in hard copy is produced by a third party and will be sent to you approximately 6-8 weeks after award. We can also confirm your status to your employer directly, if necessary.

Please make sure we have your up-to-date address so we can get your certificate to you. You can do this on your SET dashboard, under 'My profile'.


QTLS register

You will be automatically listed on the publicly searchable QTLS Professional Register once you are awarded. If you don’t wish to be publicly listed please let us know on membership@etfoundation.co.uk and your details will be removed.


Unsuccessful result

If you are given a 'Criteria Not Met' result, you have until 5pm on the re-submission deadline (usually six months after the initial results have been released) to resubmit your workbook. You can only resubmit once – this is free of charge. If you are unclear about what revisions you need to make to resubmit, you can email membership@etfoundation.co.uk to receive clarity on your feedback.


Other information

If your employer requires a Teacher Reference Number (TRN), you will need to contact Teachers’ Pension directly and inform them of your QTLS award.

You will need to remain a member of SET in order to maintain the currency of your QTLS status and its parity with QTS.
