"Those entering the sector after 1 September 2007 will be required to gain QTLS or ATLS within two years, except where teaching solely in a Sixth Form College where QTS is deemed appropriate professional status" Taken directly from the documantation that introduces QTLS and teacher registration in the PC sector. Thats where my information is coming from. Directly from the government office concerned. You appear to have a knack for picking up the wrong parts of the legislation . I am wondering if this is simply because you fail to graps the issue under discussion or if you are simply do not understand the legislation at all, or heaven forbid you are being deliberately misleading. I only know of one other person on this forum who would hold your views and argue in the same vein. I am wondering if you are one and the same person.
