What are the criteria to become an Employer School with Future Teaching Scholars?

The school needs to be state-funded and cover at least Key Stage 3 and 4 to meet Initial Teacher Training requirements for Scholars to achieve Qualified Teaching Status. The school needs to complete an application process and sign a Partnership Agreement, which includes being approved by the nearest FTS Regional Training Centre (RTC). During this process, the Ofsted rating and other information provided as part of the application process is carefully considered by the RTC to make sure that the school evidences it can provide a supportive environment for Scholars.
