Advanced Teacher Status (ATS) is the badge of advanced professionalism and mastery in further education and training. The programme was launched by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) in 2017, and is underpinned by the 20 Professional Standards. It is conferred through the Society for Education and Training (SET).
The ETF has worked in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching to ensure holders of ATS will automatically be conferred Chartered Teacher Status. This cements the parity of professional status between those teaching and training across all educational contexts.
