Becoming a Teacher: The QTLS Route
It is important for children to have a good education to help them grow into mature, responsible adults. Their future success depends on the standard of education they receive in their early years, and society benefits though having people who are inquisitive, thoughtful, knowledgeable and fair minded.
The role of the teacher plays a massive part in this process and it is a hugely rewarding career. As Albert Einstein said:
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”
It is often thought that you need a Bachelor’s Degree to become a fully qualified teacher but that is not the case at all. It is possible to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without spending years at University.
If you are thinking of making a career change to teaching or want to move up from being a teaching assistant, there is a course that you can take to become fully qualified. The course is called the Diploma in Education and Training (DET)
In this course you can gain the underpinning knowledge and practical experience needed to enter into a teaching career. Once you demonstrate this and receive your certificate, you undergo a process called Professional Formation – allowing you to gain the QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills) professional status.
The QTLS is equivalent to a QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) allowing you to teach in any educational institution in the UK.
There are many benefits that you will gain through this course and below are some of them:
- Great career progression
- Full teacher status (QTS)
- Nationally recognised qualification
- Immediately begin teaching career after being qualified
- Guaranteed school placement
- Affordable pricing options with flexible instalment plans to suit your needs
- Price match guarantee – we promise to match or beat any provider offering a similar service
For those without a degree, to be able to apply you will need a good standard of English, and a Level 4 qualification or significant knowledge/experience in your chosen subject area.
Life is too short to be stuck in an unsatisfying career. Go on – take the plunge and find out how we can help you to achieve your goals.
