Professional Formation leading to QTLS

Professional formation is a process that enables you to demonstrate the effective use of skills and knowledge in your professional practice that is required to achieve the professional status of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS).

Register for QTLS.

Overseas Route leading to QTLS

The overseas process is designed for those teachers, currently employed in England, who already hold an overseas ITT qualification and are able to evidence their current teaching practice against the requirements established through professional standards.

Advanced Teacher Status (ATS)

Advanced Teacher Status (ATS) is the badge of advanced professionalism and mastery in further education and training. The programme was launched by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) in 2017, and is underpinned by the 20 Professional Standards. It is conferred through SET. The ETF has worked in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching to ensure holders of ATS will automatically be conferred Chartered Teacher Status. This cements the parity of professional status between those teaching and training across all educational contexts. 

Express your interest in ATS.
