Route to gain QTLS/QTS

Qualified teacher learning and skills (QTLS)

If you have QTLS status and membership with the Education and Training Foundation, you will be eligible to work as a qualified teacher in schools in England.

It will be up to schools and local authorities to decide whether you are suitable for a post and to teach a particular subject. You will be exempt from serving a statutory induction period in schools.

For further information about QTLS and working in maintained schools please contact the Education and Training Foundation.

NTC is fully committed to insure their learners gain the full qualification (DET) and fully qualified status as a teacher in the shortest period of time. NTC will cater for both academic and practical parts to insure the learner meets the national standard for QTLS/QTS.

We Strongly recommend that learners should complete this qualification in stages because after completing stage 1 (AET Level 3) learners have a license to teach part time 15 hours a week there is no teaching practice for this course only micro teach (Short presentation). Completing stage 2 (CET Level 4) Learners are licensed to teach full time with limited responsibility and also gain the letters ATLS after their name with a minimum of 30 hours teaching practice. Final Stage (DET Level 5) For those who have completed CET then only 70 hours teaching practice is required otherwise it will be 100 hours.

You will receive 3 certificates instead of 1 the students not disadvantaged financially what ever the student pays towards level 3 and 4 will be deducted for the final total and we also offer a teaching position at NTC. Students can directly enrol for level 5 DET and skip AET/CET.
