The College of Teachers offers a range of qualifications based on professional practice, which differs from traditional provision.
Accredited courses are provided by the College itself (online or face-to-face) or by third parties in countries worldwide. The College of Teachers' Accreditation Handbook gives the full academic regulations for their qualifications and the application process for accreditation. Please note that changes to the process and fees will apply from January 2015 and the Guide to Accreditation 2015 will appear here shortly.
The College of Teachers' Framework of Qualifications illustrates where the College's qualifications sit in relation to the frameworks for qualifications currently in use in the UK, the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ) and the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) as well as the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
