Teacher Education Qualification requirement under Route 3 – Further Education

From 01 January 2019, in line with the Teaching Council (Registration) Regulations 2016 and Teaching Council (Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2016, all applicants for registration under Route 3 Further Education will be required to hold an appropriate Council accredited teacher education qualification.

Where an appropriate teacher education qualification is not held but all other requirements are met (minimum qualification requirements can be viewed here), applicants will be registered with the condition of ‘Teacher Education Qualification (TEQ)’ and given 3 years to fulfil the condition.

If an applicant for registration previously held full registration under Regulation Five (Further Education) of the Teaching Council [Registration] Regulations 2009 or Route 3 Further Education of the 2016 Regulations, this will be re-applied.

This will not be retrospectively applied to applications under Route 3.
