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.

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
