Diploma in Education and Training QTLS and QTS are recognized as the same

Since 1 April 2012, ETC members with Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status have been recognised as qualified to teach in schools.

Statutory instrument 2012 No. 431, which was laid in parliament on 9 March 2012, amended the 2003 regulations so that holders of QTLS who are IFL members may be appointed to permanent positions as qualified teachers, without any further induction requirements.

Schools and local authorities remain responsible for decisions on employing QTLS holders, and IfL maintains the national register of QTLS holders, including those teaching in schools.
This statutory instrument was based on the Wolf Review of how education is to be delivered in the midst of 2015 education reform.

On 3 March 2011, a groundbreaking policy decision was taken by Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Education, to accept Professor Wolf’s recommendation, with immediate effect:

“To allow qualified further education lecturers to teach in school classrooms on the same basis as qualified school teachers.”
The government published their response to the Wolf Review of Vocational Education on 12 May 2011 stating:

“We believe that schools should be free to appoint the right teachers to deliver the appropriate curriculum for their pupils. For too long highly experienced Qualified Teacher, Learning and Skills (QTLS) holders have been unable to teach the subjects in schools that they already teach in further education colleges. This means that head teachers and governing bodies have not always been able to appoint the right teacher for the delivery of high quality education across the full range of subjects taught in schools. That is why we are giving schools the freedom to select the teachers with the skills and experience that they require.”
