Hi, I came on TES because I want to start part time work in a FE institution. I have C+ grades in GCSE Eng/Maths/Sci, and one of the subjects I took for AS/A2 levels was ICT. I went to university and was awarded BSc (Hons) in Computer Science (2.1). For half a year I worked with an IT firm, then I became self employed and made websites, as well as other ventures. For a number of weeks now I have volunteering at a family learning centre, teaching Maths, this is what gave me a kick to pursue teaching. I think I've got the academic boxes ticked. Industry experience boxes ticked. Now to teach in FE institutions I need to hold QTLS - right? Do I need to apply on GTTR? To get QTLS status, I need to do a DTTLS at an FE college. But this wont mean I'll be NQT or hold QTS? Will this mean there will be no chance for me to pick up cover work ect at a local secondary ever. And also is a DTTLS subject specific, is there one for ICT, or just one for everything? IfL are the people in care of QTLS not TDA, is that right? And there's LLUK, not sure what they do. I would probably struggle to find work while I train on the job otherwise - right? Is there anything else I should do before trying to get on DTTLS course? Any help much appreciated.
