    What are my chances of gaining QTS in England?
    Was English teacher, teaching English as a foreign language in Poland for 10 years, teaching pupils from 14 to 18 years old. But this was covering years 1992 to 2002.
    Have been a teaching assistant since 2012, specialising in assisting new students with English as a second language.
    Basically, what are my chances of of gaining QTS? I need to increase my employment opportunities, so thinking if I gain QTS, I can possibly teach english/english literature or be a supply teacher.

    Appreciate any advice or guidance on this matter.

    Do you have a proper teaching qualification from somewhere?

    If yes, see here if it can be used in the UK: https://www.naric.org.uk/naric/Individuals/Compare Qualifications/default.aspx

    If not, your chances are zero.

    English as a Foreign Language does not confer QTS in the UK - you cannot study a PGCE in it.

    Some schools may employ you to teach EFL as an unqualified teacher, but only in certain areas of the UK,

  3. If you have a teaching degree than yes you can get QTS.

    If you have a degree you could try to be accepted for a PGCE with QTS but that would involve a further year full time study over here. You are unlikely to get a teaching post in secondary English without an English degree as well as QTS though.

    Yes despite what you see in replies if you have teaching qualifications and degree I see no problem in you gaining qts.
