Government consultation on the introduction of the international qualified teacher status (iQTS)

The AGCAS Teaching and Related Professions Task Group has collated a draft response to the Department for Education (DfE) proposals for the creation of a new international teaching qualification: International Qualified Teacher Status (iQTS). The DfE consultation makes proposals for the framework underpinning this new qualification, based on English methods and standards, which could be delivered in a range of different settings globally. iQTS would be a standalone qualification that demonstrates that a trainee has completed an international teacher training course rooted in English methods and met the required standard to teach in an international setting.
