Register for QTLS at any time
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.
