Date Added: 19 October 2011

New plans set out by the government are to make it easier for teachers trained in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA to gain teaching jobs in the UK.

Teachers trained from these countries currently have to undertake further training and assessment to gain QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) despite the fact that they have already been through training to achieve equivalent teacher training qualifications.

Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education, has announced that the government plans to change this, allowing overseas trained teachers to teach in the UK automatically. Michael Gove stated:

‘One of the aims of my department is to make sure that the most talented people possible are teaching our children and it is already the case that teachers from the European Economic Area can teach in our schools.

I want to extend that freedom to teachers from the Commonwealth countries such as Canada and New Zealand and Australia and I hope that other Commonwealth countries like South Africa, Jamaica and Singapore can join in due course.’

These proposed changes could come into effect from early 2012 and we will of course keep our teachers aware of the situation.

If you have any questions regarding teaching jobs in the UK or gaining QTS please don’t hesitate to contact us.
