QTS full time teaching apprenticeship

Financial support

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

As an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provider, Teach SouthEast delivers high quality bespoke school-centred ITT programmes for aspiring secondary teachers in South East England. Led by two outstanding teaching schools, St John the Baptist (SJB) and Salesian School, who together with their vast network of partnership schools, are passionate about training and developing outstanding teachers of the future. Since being involved in ITT, Teach SouthEast are proud to say that 100% of all trainees completing the course passed with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with 96% of our 2017-18 trainees graded as either good or outstanding (46% outstanding). An impressive 70% of the 2017-18 trainees are now employed in schools within the partnership and 98% were employed by the end of their training year. Teach SouthEast offers routes into teaching through School Direct, Core SCITT and Apprenticeship places. We seek to provide a dynamic environment where trainees on any of the ITT pathways can immerse themselves in what it is to be a great teacher, be nurtured within their own practice and be empowered to deliver outstanding lessons to our students. The two lead schools in the partnership have been graded as "Outstanding" by Ofsted in every category, which enables us to deliver an engaging and innovative training programme with unique opportunities to experience placement in primary, secondary and in a special school. All trainees are provided with a trained and dedicated mentor to lead you through your training year.

About the accredited body

Teach SouthEast is pleased to be a recommending body for the qualification of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for all trainees. For the qualification of PGCE, Teach SouthEast is pleased to work in partnership with the University of Sussex, who deliver the PGCE element of the course. Trainees have the opportunity to go to the University of Sussex on a number of occasions throughout the year to access keynote lectures.

At Teach SouthEast, every trainee benefits from the strong support system as well as having individual named tutors to whom they can turn for advice and support.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We work with any trainees that have additional needs to put together a bespoke support plan that is individual to them. In the past, this has included; providing printouts of presentation slides; enabling the use of recording devices during training sessions; enabling the use of laptop computers during training sessions; considered seating arrangements; providing additional pastoral support meetings throughout the year and extra support with paperwork. Our unsalaried trainees, who study for the PGCE, also have access to support through the University of Sussex Student Life Centre. We pride ourselves on knowing our trainees well, and catering for any needs they may have.
