Make the Transition to become a teacher with the Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training

Once you have completed the level 5 Diploma in Education & Training you can then apply to gain QTLS status.  QTLS stands for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills

QTLS status is a voluntary process which demonstrates your commitment to being a professional teacher in England.

It is gained through being a member of the professional association the Society for Education and Training (SET) which is part of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF).

Gaining QTLS status gives parity with school teachers' who are QTS status, enabling you to teach in a school or an academy should you wish.

To gain QTLS status, you will need to provide evidence of your literacy and numeracy skills (part of the minimum core) to at least level two.

If you already hold a numeracy/maths and literacy/English qualification such as Key Skills or GCSE grade A-C these should be acceptable or a coaching qualification at Level 2 QCF.
