Does anyone know the process of how i get my qts after being abroad for many years. I have my bachelor degree in english and i completed a P.G.C.E in post compulsory education. I then did supply teaching in uk for a few months amd then i left to work abroad. I am thinking of returning to the uk and wondered if anyone knows how i go about getting my qts.

You would need to find a job in a school which will register you as an Early Career Teacher, and complete the 2 year induction

You will have to do the early career induction.
Your PGCE is post compulsory -is it 14-19 or 16-19? If the latter, you may struggle to get a job in a state maintained school. Academies may be easier though.
Or, would you prefer to teach in a college?

Thanks for the information. My pgce is 16-19 i think. To teach a level english. But i have also worled supply teaching in secondary schools doing all years. However, this was very brief only a few months.
So basically if i get a job i can then get my qts through employment??
Thank you so much for all the info.

Can I also ask does my teaching experience for the past 17 years abroad count for anything??
Or is it like starting from the beginning again?

Sadly not. If you've not passed induction, you need to. Except to teach in academies or the private sector.
You have to be registered for induction. I have an ECT starting next term who has been working in post 16 but they didn't register her, so it effectively doesn't count.
