Gaining your UK Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is a recommended step towards joining the program and we urge all teachers to apply as soon as possible, whatever level your certification or license from your home country is.

Please note though. If you are a teacher from Jamaica or South Africa, you will not be able to automatically gain QTS prior to arriving in England and will have to gain it once you begin teaching in England.

Even if you are not entirely committed to teaching in England just yet, please apply for your QTS ( as it will speed up the application process towards you securing a position in England. The service is free to apply and all you have to do is upload your certification/license. You’ll receive an answer back within a month.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT A GOVERNMENT AGENCY AND WE DO NOT MAKE DECISIONS ON QTS – Please use the contact on the website if you have queries.

Having UK QTS will make you stand out to UK schools looking to hire.

It is very important to also point out that if for any reason you do not gain or are unable to qualify for QTS, it will not stop Quantum Scholars recruiting you towards securing a teaching position. Many schools across England are entirely comfortable hiring an international teacher without QTS.

Once you receive your UK QTS number, please email the confirmation to


I wanted to get experience teaching internationally, yet stay teaching maths. This program gives me an extra layer of support and opportunity to develop my professional skills that I would not have otherwise had. The service has been wonderful. Quantum Scholars made sure I was well-informed and supported throughout the entire process and communication was easy. This is a great way to take a step and try something new, but feel supported along the way.

The service has been wonderful. Quantum Scholars have been very informative, helpful and accommodating. All questions I had were answered quickly, thoroughly and thoughtfully. The visa process was also very straightforward after meeting with Quantum Scholar’s visa representative.

Quantum Scholars has been very helpful, transparent and efficient and I got a job teaching students that fit my skill set. The process was very straightforward and I would recommend Quantum Scholars. The visa process was also very straightforward and I really appreciated having the help of a UK immigration expert.

Quantum Scholars is a great opportunity to live and teach in another country to open up new experiences. The schools presented to me were great options that fitted my requests and personality. It’s an excellent service that is very helpful and every question I had was addressed and answered with care. Lots of advising and assistance was given to me during the visa process which was extremely helpful.

They are prompt, effective communicators that are eager to support you through the process. They are extremely supportive and informative and make an intimidating process seem easy. It is a great program where the representatives are excited to help you with the transition
