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.
