    So this year onwards, we have to do the QTS Skills Tests before we can start any teaching course. I've already passed mine, but do they have to be done every few years?

    I ask because I seem to remember hearing/reading they're valid for three years, but this is simply for the purposes of a teaching degree?

    They're valid for three years, so you have three years to gain entry on to a teaching degree/course before you have to sit them again. You only have to sit them once if you get on a course in that three years.

    Excellent, thank you I did suspect that was the case, but thanks for confirming!
