Higher education institutions (HEIs) must now use this service instead of the provider portal to:

  • withdraw trainees who are no longer training for qualified teacher status (QTS) or early years teacher status (EYTS)
  • defer trainees or reinstate them when they return to training - you can also do this through the Higher Education Statistics Authority (HESA) service if you used it to register the trainee
  • recommend trainees for QTS or EYTS
