Does QTS expire??

    I thought my QTS status was safe. I never finished my NQT year as it was awful! No support and a nasty mentor. Anyway...I was called by an agency the other day. I know supply runs out after 5 years but she told me I had to get back into a school or I'd lose my QTS status and be deemed an unqualified teacher because they changed the rules! Is this accurate?!

    Doesn't sound like a change to me.

    I can't find anything that says the rules have changed! Feel like it's a con to get me to work for them

    QTS never 'expires'.

    It will become increasingly difficult to get a job in teaching once supply work stops being an option. Seombdy might take you on too complete induction if you have done supply recently, but it will not be easier if there is a significant gap. The agency might be wrong on you losing QTS, but their advice to try to complete induction seems wise to me.
