In-service QTS training

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by oasis6767, Feb 15, 2011.

  1. Hello all,
    I qualified last year with a post-compulsory PGCE (currently being assessed for QTLS), but I'm finding it hard to get permanent work in the post-16 sector. I'm very lucky to have a full-time contract in a good school, but of course I'm paid as an "unqualified teacher" (which rankles a bit!)
    Does anyone know if it is possible to work towards QTS with a university while in service? I've applied for the Assessment Based Option with the University of Gloucester (lack of spaces and money seems to be the problem there), and the GTP are not interested because I already have a teaching qualification!
    Advice would be most welcome!
  2. Hi
    GTP is really the only opiton (other than the Gloucester route). Some GTP providers would try and accelerated route to QTS given your PGCE and work towards QTLLS. Have you contacted schools directly or the provider directly? It may be that if a school is willing to sponsor you then the provider would be more willing to place you on the GTP route they offer.
