Overseas Trained Teachers

European Economic Area (EEA) nationals who are recognised as qualified school teachers in another EEA member state, may apply for QTS in England under the terms of the Council Directive 2005/35/EC, without the need to undertake further teacher training in England. You need to make an application for QTS to the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). You can download the application form from the DfE website.

 

The Education (specified work) (England) Regulations 2012 allow teachers trained in a country outside of the UK to teacher in states maintained schools and non-maintained special schools in England for up to 4 years.

 

Teachers who qualified in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America (USA) may apply for qualified teacher status without further training or assessment in England.

N.B Teachers from overseas may be subject to UK Border Agency Requirements.

 

If you are looking for a teaching post in Bedford Borough, you should apply directly to schools advertising suitable vacancies in the usual way.
