How many teaching days do you need to achieve QTS?

    I’m a trainee teacher on a SCITT course. I’ve been watching the news about the coronavirus and am getting concerned about how many days I will need to have completed in school to gain my QTS.
    I have one of the preexisting conditions that they keep on mentioning and I’ve also heard that at some point in the coming weeks the government are planning to ask people over 70 and in the preexisting condition groups to self isolate for up to 4 months!
    I’ve been in school from the first INSET day in September and obviously I am not going to put myself at an unnecessary risk, but I know that there’s a minimum amount of days that you need to have spent in school to pass the course and get the QTS. Does anybody know what the official requirement is?
    I’m asking as I have a job lined up for September in a good school, but one of the conditions is that I achieve QTS first.

    I believe it’s 120 days in placement, or 24 weeks but that may be specific to one provider.
