Overseas Qualified Teacher Status

In most English schools, Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is a legal requirement, and it’s a prerequisite for working as a teacher. 

We welcome qualified teachers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. Qualified teachers from these countries are able to apply for qualified teacher status (QTS) without having to undertake further training in England. 

There is four year rule that applies to teachers who qualify in countries outside of the EEA and Switzerland. This excludes teachers who qualified in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. 

Overseas trained teachers (OTT’s) are allowed to teach in state maintained schools and non-maintained special schools in England as unqualified teachers for four calendar years. 

They are not permitted to teach in pupil referral units (PRUs) until they have been awarded qualified teacher status. 

OTT’s can find out more by contacting teacher enquiries on 0370 496 8324 or email
