The Department for Education (DfE) has developed proposals for a new international teaching qualification, International Qualified Teacher Status (iQTS).
DfE will use your responses to ensure this qualification gives teachers the opportunity to:
- train to high-quality, English standards worldwide
- provide more opportunities for English teacher training providers to expand into the international teacher training market
This new qualification, based on English standards and training methods, will seek to:
- provide new and growing opportunities for English-style teacher training overseas
- meet global demand for high-quality education for teachers
DfE welcomes your views and supporting evidence in response to this consultation.
