Is the QTLS and QTS the same?

According to government legislations as of March 2012, the QTLS and the QTS are now viewed as the same qualification. They both follow the same procedure of knowledge-based and work- based elements with a specific number of workplace evidence. This acknowledgement is part of education reform to address the needs and expertise needed for 14-19 education reform and the new mandatory school leaving age of 18. Salaries and benefits are the same and now allows professionals with areas of expertise outside of the academia to be able to teach in compulsory education.

But are schools hiring people with QTLS?

Yes schools, both primary and secondary are hiring holders of QTLS. From our own personal experience, almost all of our graduates are working in primary schools, secondary schools, PRUs and Sixth Form colleges.

What is the training like?

The training is very similar in delivery to the PGCE. It covers areas of behaviour management, professional development, equality and diversity, assessment, working with 14-19 year age range and inclusion among others.
