Following our news article back in October 2011, the Department for Education have now confirmed that as of April 1st 2012, teachers whom have qualified in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and USA will now be recognised as qualified teachers and awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in England without being required to undertake any further training or assessment.

As well as being eligible to work in the UK, overseas trained teachers (OTTs) will need to have a fully recognised teaching qualification and, in some instances, registration from their country of origin. Teachers from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the USA, who are fully qualified and registered in their own country, can apply for UK Qualified Teachers Status (QTS) by completing the following form:

QTS Application for Teachers from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

Teachers trained and qualified in Ireland can apply for QTS once they are fully registered with the Irish Teaching Council. This usually involves completing a certain number of hours in the classroom following your training. The form you will need to complete once you are registered is:

QTS Application for Teachers from Ireland
