Gaining your UK Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is a recommended step towards teaching in England and we urge all teachers to apply as soon as possible as this is a UK recognised teaching qualification, whatever level your certification or license from your home country is. Having QTS (teaching qualification for the UK) will make you stand out more to English schools looking to hire an international candidate.

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 unless you are a Maths or Science Teacher.

Even if you are not entirely committed to teaching in England just yet, please apply for your QTS

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

I received honest feedback and was helped every step of the way with advice and answers to every question I had. I am excited to be a part of the program!
