Early Years Service

Early Years Service and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) means having the right to teach in England. QTS is awarded by the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA).

If you have QTS, you do NOT need the Early Years Service. Your QTS allows you to work in Early Years settings. You should present evidence of your QTS directly to the potential employer.

Qualified teachers from some countries can achieve QTS because of their professional status in their country of origin. Registered teachers from EU and EEA Member States, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the USA may be eligible for QTS without further training.

If you are a registered teacher eligible for QTS (but you don't yet have it), you do NOT need the Early Years Service. Further information on how to apply for QTS is available online.

If you do not have QTS, and you are not eligible for QTS, you need to use the UK NARIC Early Years Service.
