Update on Teacher's Employment in the UK: QTS Application date released.

English teacher training leads to a professional teaching qualification called qualified teacher status (QTS).

If you’re a qualified teacher from outside the UK, you can work as a teacher in England for up to 4 years without QTS.

After that, QTS is a legal requirement to teach in many English schools and is considered desirable for teachers in the majority of schools in England.

This guide explains how to apply for QTS if you are qualified to teach or have gained teaching experience outside the UK.

The Qualified Teachers Status (QTS) is a legal requirement to teach in many schools in the UK. The route to QTS was only available to certain countries. From the 1st of February 2023, teachers with teaching qualifications from the following countries will be able to apply to the Teaching Regulation Authority for QTS:




📍South Africa




📍Hong Kong


This change is part of the launch of a new service, apply for QTS in England. From 1 February 2023, the way we award QTS will change.

Teachers from all eligible countries will have to show they meet a consistent set of criteria for the award of QTS. Over time, this route will be opened to qualified teachers from every country outside the UK.


To be eligible, you must:

·       Have an undergraduate degree verified by UK ENIC

·       Have completed teacher training that meets the standard of a Level 6 qualification

·       Have completed a course with content that is practically and pedagogically focused

·       Be qualified to teach children aged between 5 and 16 years

·       Have at least one school year (a minimum of 9 months including school holidays but excluding time out taken for any other reason) of professional experience working as a teacher after qualifying

·       Have a professional status needed to be a teacher in the country where you qualified, and not be subject to any conditions or restrictions on your practice. 

The link for this application will be available by 1st February 2023.
