Do I need to be working in a school to do a QTLS course?

    I have just recently completed my PGCE and have a QTS but I wanted to do the QTLS course.

    I know that you're supposed to be competing online workbooks etc but I wanted to know if I am supposed to be employed at a school to do this course?

    I don't have a job at a school at the moment so does this mean I'd have to ask a school to take me on for 1 day a week so i can teach some lessons whilst completing the QTLS course? (I'm assuming 1 day a week as I've heard I need to be teaching a minimum of 2 hours a week)

    I am just a little unsure of what I need to be doing during the course really and how it all works!!

    Is it just online workbook or volunteering in a school too? How easy is it to get a placement in a school to complete this course?

    Sorry for any stupid questions I just really don't know how it works!

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Why do you want to do QTLS??
    QTLS is the equivalent of QTS.
    If you work/ go to work in an FE college or environment you will be given CPD and training which will enable you to adapt your teaching methods to your students' needs.

    I wanted to do it because I am not able to complete the rest of my NQT terms due to some unforseen circumstances. I have only done one term. So I thought doing a QTLS course will be good as I won't have to worry about my NQT year.

    Do you think schools will give me a placement of 1 day a week to help me complete this course? I'm worried about not getting a response from schools
