These comparability tables offer country-by-country analysis of primary and secondary teacher qualifications offered in 35 Commonwealth countries, in an accessible and easy-to-read format.

They were prepared by the South African Qualifications Authority for the Commonwealth Secretariat to enhance recognition of teacher qualifications across borders and between the member countries of the Commonwealth.

Please note that Fair Trade for Teachers: Transferability of Teacher Qualifications in the Commonwealth (February 2010; 60pp; £25.00; ISBN 978-1-84929-014-2) includes a copy of the Commonwealth Teacher Qualifications Comparability Table as an insert in the back pocket of the main book.




This document contains updated information on teacher qualifications in participating Commonwealth countries presented in the form of a comparability table. The table is intended for use by government officials, credential evaluators, academics, and policy researchers as well as individual teachers moving between countries.
