The Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) awarded to graduates is, first and foremost, a qualification to teach in England. Many other countries will recognise it but, if your plan is to teach overseas, we recommend you contact the relevant authorities in your country of choice beforehand to check your eligibility.
This course is designed as a route into a teaching job. You will leave qualified to teach across the primary sector, whether you decide to work in an early years setting, independent or maintained school, academy or SEN (Special Educational Needs) school. Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate and find a job. Roehampton holds an annual jobs fair where you can find out about graduate opportunities and meet prospective employers from across London and the south east.
