Teaching 14-16 year olds in FE College.

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by The_Machinist., Sep 2, 2011.

  1. Hi all, some advice needed please, I'm sure someone here will be able to clear this up.
    I am an Engineering Instructor at an FE College. Before this I started a PGCE, but while on a placement at the College I was offered a job, so I left the PGCE and took it. (I now regret this)
    Although I have since done PTLLS and CTLLS, I do not have either QTS or QTLS.
    I have been teaching 14-16 year old kids doing the new Diploma at College.
    I know for a fact I would not be allowed to Teach 14-16 year olds in a School Classroom because I don't have QTS, so can anyone tell me if I should be Teaching them in a College Classroom without QTS? The only difference is the building in which the lessons take place!
    I'm Confused - any advice would be appreciated, so thanks in advance.

  3. You could teach in a state school as an 'instructor' without OTS, but with qualifications or experience in a specific subject. We have had several instructors taking lessons for many months while waiting to get a place on a GTP programme.
     
  4. Hi, I had a PGCE for FE and worked within the sector for 10 years before obtaining a job in a school. I was paid on the unqualified scale, but passed the GTP within 4 months and then moved on to the main pay scale, so it is possible.

  5. Yes, PTTLS, CTTLS and DTTLS all train you to work with anyone from 14+ in a college, but not in a school.
