Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status

We are offering QTLS through the University of Greenwich in partnership with the Society for Education and Training (SET).

We are the first provider to offer this in partnership with the Society of Education and Training (SET) in London, and the third nationally.

This will provide an opportunity for our trainees, graduates and new students to work with us to gain QTLS status through the professional formation process.

We will provide guidance and support for participants:

  • Provide clear information in partnership with SET at a HEI briefing.
  • Peer observing participants in a partnership arrangement with the participant's employer.
  • Provide three face to face/ online workshops during the process to promote a community of practice and facilitate collaborative working between participants.
  • Provide a workshop to support supporters.

To be eligible to apply for QTLS at the University of Greenwich, you will need:

  • Level 2 English and Maths at grade C/ band 4 or equivalent
  • A minimum of Level 3 in your teaching subject specialism
  • A minimum of a Level 5 teaching qualification
  • Employment or voluntary work of a minimum of four hours per week of solo group teaching
  • Please source your own supporter who will be able to observe your practice and meet with you three times for a professional discussion - your employer may be able to help you with this.

We will require details of your employer and supporter prior to starting the course. You will need to be a member of SET.
