Unqualified Teacher

An ‘unqualified teacher’ is someone who has not passed the QTS process in England. It doesn’t necessarily mean that person can’t teach, or that they have no teaching experience or qualifications. Teachers in private schools do not need QTS, so a teacher switching from the independent sector to the state sector is counted as an unqualified teacher. And teachers who are already qualified abroad are technically unqualified in England, though they may be eligible to for QTS without further training, depending on the country they trained in.

The purpose of an unqualified teacher:

• To support teaching a class of pupils, and ensure that planning, preparation,
recording, assessment and reporting meet their varying learning and social
• Maintain the positive ethos and core values of the school, both inside and outside
the classroom;
• Contribute to constructive team-building amongst teaching and non-teaching
staff, parents and governors;
• Ensure that the current national conditions of employment for unqualified school
teachers are met.
• Contribute to extra-curricular activities.
