This is non-statutory departmental advice on employing overseas-trained teachers (OTTs) to teach in state maintained and non-maintained special schools in England. In this guidance, OTTs are people who have qualified as teachers in a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland, having successfully completed a course of initial teacher training, which is recognised by the relevant authorities in their home countries.
The Education (Specified Work and Registration) (England) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/762) set out the conditions under which overseas-trained teachers are allowed to carry out specified work.
This advice will be kept under review and updated as necessary.
