Introducing International Qualified Teacher Status (iQTS)

Please click on the link above to access details of the government’s consultation on the development of an international teaching qualification (iQTS). The consultation seeks views on:

  • where the highest demand for iQTS might be – for example which countries or regions, and which types of school (e.g. British international schools versus local state schools)
  • the required standards, entry criteria and course content for the development of iQTS
  • whether ITT providers have capacity or interest in designing and delivering this new qualification
  • any other aspect of iQTS detail, delivery, benefits and potential issues

The DfE are also hosting virtual round tables until the end of April 2021 if you’d like to join the debate with other stakeholders, find out more or ask any questions. You can register for these events here.
