Dual qualifications - Secondary teachers

During the Teacher Induction Scheme probationers can only become fully registered in one secondary subject, even if they hold a teaching qualification and provisional registration in two subjects.

After gaining the Standard for Full Registration (SFR) in the first subject, the following arrangements apply:

For a second subject, 135 days of probationary service is required. This period may be reduced to 95 days if the probationary service is completed in one educational establishment. The second subject must make up at least 20% of the weekly timetable.

A report, signed by your headteacher, must be submitted with a recommendation for full registration.
