Course Title: Assessment Only Route to QTS (in UK or International settings)

Course Overview:

If you’re an experienced teacher with a degree, you can achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) without having to do any further training. Assessment Only (AO) allows you to demonstrate that you already meet all of the standards for QTS, by presenting a detailed portfolio of evidence. Your teaching will be assessed in a school by us, as an accredited and approved AO provider.

  • Currently employed as an unqualified teacher in a UK or BSO setting

The second school placement must be an absolute minimum of 6 weeks with evidence to support whole class teaching across the breadth of the appropriate age primary curriculum during that time.
