    I am interested in working in schools and am unsure about QTLS. I am aware that it has parity with QTS, however I would like to know whether I can obtain it automatically as qualified with my PGCE in FE in 2005 and have been working in teaching and training since then. I was art of the IFL with my first lecturing role at college in 2008, but that expired years ago. Hope you can answer my question as I can't cant afford. £500 for the Set process (applying online for QTLS).

    Its been a while and I work in school now but I think you have to bite the bullet and pay for QTLS via professional formation. That is basically a paper trail. Can you get your employer to pay the fees?

    Alternatively, you could try QTS via an assessment only route ( takes about three months - another paper trail) but I think thats more expensive.
