ATS recognises experienced professionals who can demonstrate:

  • mastery in teaching and/or training
  • an exemplary degree of subject knowledge in their area of professional expertise
  • effectiveness in working collaboratively to improve teaching standards amongst their peers or within their organisation or network.

The ETF has worked closely with the Chartered College of Teaching to ensure holders of ATS will automatically be conferred Chartered Teacher Status.
