EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations apply to teachers employed in further education institutions on or after 1st September 2001 (regulation 3(1)).

They do not apply to teachers—

(a)employed on courses of higher education only;

(b)employed before 1st September 2007 who hold QTS;

(c)employed solely in sixth form colleges who hold QTS; or

(d)who obtained an appropriate qualification under the 2001 Regulations before 1st September 2007 (regulation 3(2)).

They do not apply until 1st September 2008 to teachers enrolled on a course to obtain an appropriate qualification under the 2001 Regulations before 1st September 2007 with a view to obtaining that qualification by 31st August (regulation 3(3)).

From 1st September 2008, they do not apply to teachers who obtain that qualification by 31st August 2008 and have only limited application in relation to teachers who do not obtain that qualification by that date (regulation 3(4) and (5)).

They have only limited application in relation to any other teachers employed before 1st September 2007 (regulation 3(6)).

Subject to limited exceptions, the Regulations—

(a)prohibit people from teaching in a further education institution unless they hold a Preparing to Teach Award or its equivalent;

(b)prohibit people from teaching in a further education institution unless they hold a specified qualification, or its equivalent;

(c)require all persons employed in full teaching roles to hold QTLS status;

(d)require all persons employed in associate teaching roles to hold ATLS status; and

(e)allow teachers time in which to comply with the relevant requirements (regulations 4 to 6).

The Regulations revoke the Further Education Teachers’ Qualifications (England) Regulations 2001, except in relation to teachers employed before 1st September 2007 who are already enrolled on a course with a view to obtaining an appropriate qualification under those Regulations by 31st August 2008. Those teachers continue to be subject to those Regulations until 31st August 2008 (regulation 7).
