QTLS

Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) is the badge of professionalism for post-16 education and training, helping practitioners advance in their careers and demonstrate their expertise and experience to colleagues, employers and learners.

To register for QTLS from 1 February you can now register your interest (without making payment) for QTLS at any time in order to start your workbook in early October:

  • There will be two cohorts a year, one commencing 1 October 2019 and one commencing in early January 2020. This means that all QTLS registrants will be invited to make payment a month before the start date and all online workbooks will be made available on the cohort start date.
  • Payment by direct debit instalments will still be available and the full price of £485 will remain unchanged.
