When is a 'teacher' a 'tutor,' 'mentor,' 'educator' or 'lecturer'?

the UK  has  enclosure of title  for Teachers after a fashion, you cannot   be called  or  employed  as a Teacher in  the  State sector without QTS , however there are not  restrictions on scope of practice  for those without QTS , not a requirement for  classes to be  overseen  / led by  someone with QTS.

Actually that’s not true. QTS is a status not a qualification & it is perfectly possible to be employed as a teacher in several parts of the state sector without that status. It is only maintained schools that have this requirement.
