EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Education (School Teachers’ Qualifications) (England) Regulations 2003 (the “2003 Regulations”) set out the requirements which must be satisfied in order to be a qualified teacher for the purposes of section 132 of the Education Act 2002.

Schedule 2 to the 2003 Regulations specifies the various routes to achieve qualified teacher status. Paragraph 13B of Schedule 2 provides that a person has qualified teacher status if that person holds qualified teacher learning and skills status (“QTLS status”) within the further education sector and is a member of the Institute for Learning, provided that person is not included on the list kept by the Secretary of State under section 141C(1)(b) of the Education Act 2002.

Prior to the implementation of these Regulations, QTLS status has been awarded by the Institute for Learning and membership of the Institute for Learning has also been a condition for holders of QTLS status in order to have qualified teacher status. In consequence of the Institute for Learning ceasing operations and transferring its operations in relation to QTLS status to the Education and Training Foundation, these Regulations replace paragraph 13B of Schedule 2 to the 2003 Regulations. The new paragraph takes account of the fact that QTLS status will be awarded, with effect from the date these Regulations come into force, by the Education and Training Foundation in place of the Institute for Learning and provides for professional membership of the Education and Training Foundation to be an additional condition of qualified teacher status in place of membership of the Institute for Learning.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as it has no impact on businesses or civil society organisations. The instrument has no impact on the public sector. The Explanatory Memorandum is published alongside the Regulations at www.legislation.gov.uk.
