You have to be a member of the Society for Education and Training (SET) to register for professional formation, and to keep your Qualified Teacher Learning Skills (QTLS) status current and up to date once you have been awarded with QTLS.
Once you have joined SET and logged into your MY SET Dashboard, you can register for QTLS during one of the payment windows listed below. Please note that by registering for QTLS you are accepting the terms and conditions.
In addition, expressing your interest in QTLS is not a formal registration, but an expression of interest to enable us to get in touch with you with further information.
If your result is criteria not met for any reason, you will have a period of up to six months to add any additional information and resubmit your application. There is no charge to resubmit your application; however, you are only able to resubmit it once. If you receive a 'criteria not met' result after your resubmission or fail to meet the resubmission deadline, you will need to begin your QTLS workbook again, upon payment of a £50 re-start fee. You will receive your results approximately two to three weeks after your resubmission.

Payment structure for Professional Formation leading to QTLS
There are two options for making the payment of £485:
1. Pay £485 in full by credit/debit card or by one direct debit payment, or
2. Pay £110 as a deposit by credit/debit card and three further monthly payments of £125 will be made by direct debit from your bank account.
For those who have previously registered for QTLS, at any time prior to April 2018, the payment process of £100 deposit paid on registration and £385 paid on submission of the workbook will still be valid.
If your employer has agreed to pay for your QTLS and requires an invoice, please email email@example.com with the following information (please ensure you are a current member of SET before applying for QTLS):
SET administers both QTLS status and Advanced Teacher Status (ATS) on behalf of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF).
