The professional, personal and learner benefits of gaining Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status have been underlined by new research carried out for the Society for Education and Training (SET) by CFE Research.
QTLS holders who had gained the status since September 2016 were asked about the benefits of their achievement to themselves, their students and the places where they work.
Martin Reid, Director of the Society for Education and Training, said:
“This research highlights the significant benefits of gaining QTLS to the individuals who achieve it, as well as their students and colleagues. It suggests that QTLS boosts not just employability and pay, but also an individual’s practice and impact.
“These results are not a surprise. Working towards and achieving QTLS helps an individual develop and demonstrate their skills, knowledge and professionalism, which are linked to better performance and recognition.”
Those wishing to apply for the next round of QTLS have until 31 January 2019 to do so. Applicants must be members of the Society for Education and Training. Details are available on the SET website.
