What happens if I have a LAT and then complete a teaching qualification. Can I apply using the same ESL?

Yes, but you will need to talk to the Delegated Authoriser at your school and ask them to change your ESL role from LAT to Teacher. If you have any questions please contact the Teaching Council.
