Advanced Teacher Status (ATS) is the badge of advanced professionalism and mastery in further education and training. It is a new professional status conferred by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) through the Society for Education and Training (SET).
ATS recognises experienced professionals who can demonstrate:
- mastery in teaching and/or training
- an exemplary degree of subject knowledge in their area of professional expertise
- effectiveness in working collaboratively to improve teaching standards amongst their peers or within their organisation.
The first ATS cohort of applicants will start on 1 October 2017 and will benefit from a reduced fee of £250 (normal fee £750) in return for providing extensive feedback about their experience of undertaking ATS.
