QTLS - Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status

QTLS is a Professional Status recognised in the Education sector, which is gained after successfully completing a six-month period of Professional Formation and maintained through membership to the Society for Education and Training.

The Professional Formation programme enables you to show your progression and commitment to excellence within the Further Education and Skills sector. Once you achieve QTLS, you’ll be added to the professional register where future employers can check your status. Achieving QTLS will also allow you to teach in schools on the same terms as QTS.

Our Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is one of the recognised pre-requisite qualifications for gaining QTLS and can be completed by distance learning.
