Institute for Learning's Policy on Professional Formation
Professional formation is the post-qualification process by which a teacher demonstrates through professional practice the ability to use effectively the skills and knowledge acquired whilst training to be a teacher and the capacity to meet the occupational standards required of a teacher. Professional formation leads to the conferral of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS).
If you have qualifications from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) will be able to advise you on whether your particular qualifications are equivalent to UK qualifications, and they may also provide certification where appropriate.
The Institute for Learning (IfL) also offers a scheme to recognise Overseas Qualifications. The scheme is designed for those teachers, currently employed in England, who already hold an overseas ITT qualification and are able to evidence their current teaching practice against the national standards for teaching in the lifelong learning sector.
