QTS (qualified teacher status) allows you to teach in state schools in England.

It may also allow you to teach in the EU, the EEA and Switzerland. You should check with the institution you’d like to teach in for confirmation. The status of QTS in these countries may change after the UK leaves the EU. Please check GOV.UK for updates.

To teach in the rest of the UK or internationally, you may wish to consider a ‘PGCE (or PGDE) with QTS’ qualification instead.

About the training provider

Sutton SCITT comprises of over 25 high-performing, local, yet diverse primary and secondary schools, all of which have high expectations of students and view training and development of staff as key to future success. Sutton and Merton schools are consistently some of the most successful schools in London.

The SCITT has extremely high standards and aspirations for all of its trainees and as a result employment, completion and attainment of trainees is very high. In October 2017 the SCITT received its first Ofsted inspection report and was judged to be ‘outstanding’ in all areas; outcomes for trainees, training, leadership and overall. The inspection report particularly praised how well prepared trainees were for their NQT year, their teaching and the support trainees received from colleagues in the SCITT.

As a SCITT, our training is school-led, school-based and school-focused so you will be recruited by schools, based in schools and trained within our partnership of schools. We anticipate the vast majority of our trainees will go on to teach in our schools, we invest in you because we know our schools and children will benefit. Equally, our training equips you to teach in any school you choose, so if you do not wish to teach in Sutton or Merton you will be able to secure employment elsewhere.

All our tutors are experienced school leaders who still work in our schools as teachers. Consequently, our programme is rooted in the reality of the classroom as well as the educational theory and literature.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We are fully committed to training all candidates who have the potential to make a difference to young people in school and we take into consideration all trainees with additional needs. Wherever possible we will make reasonable adjustments for any disability. All our trainees are required to undertake a fitness to teach prior to commencing the programme and personalised support is arranged accordingly. All of our schools have access arrangements for people with disabilities although some parts of the school may be less accessible than others.

We are not a university and therefore do not have a student support, mental health or medical service on site at any of our schools and instead we use external consultants to assess and support trainees where necessary.
