QTS

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 course

Trainees learn on the job in a supportive environment with a mentor throughout their training. The majority of the training takes place on the 2 school placements and trainees attend 15 training days at Canterbury Christ Church University. Trainees are assessed through an ongoing system of internal and external evaluation which leads to a final assessment process. Trainees will be provided with a timetable within their subject area and work across all the Key Stages.

Interview process

Trainees are interviewed by the individual schools that are looking to train future teachers. Trainees are asked to teach a micro lesson, complete literacy and numeracy tests provided by Canterbury Christ Church University and attend an interview.

How school placements work

Secondary trainees spend the majority of their time in 1 base school. They spend a 1 month block in a comparative school and complete a shorter placement in a primary school. Primary trainees complete a second placement of 1 month in a different Key Stage or setting and complete a short placement in a secondary school in Key Stage 3.
