Información importante


If you’re an experienced teacher without QTS, you can become a qualified teacher while teaching in school. You’ll undergo a period of assessment (lasting a maximum of 12 weeks) in order to meet the Teachers’ Standards and gain QTS. There are specific national requirements which you’ll have to meet, including at least one year’s previous teaching experience.

We’ll assess your ability to teach across two or more consecutive age ranges and demonstrate that you have met the Teachers’ Standards.

The Assessment Only route is supported and assessed by experienced and expert teachers in schools or other settings and the University.

It’s important to note that this is not a training course – we expect you to be meeting the teachers’ standards before starting the assessment period. A significant teaching role in your supporting school will be necessary to enable you to demonstrate your ability to meet the Teachers Standards in order to gain QTS.

We’ll help you to question and challenge your current thinking and practice and to consider the aspects you want to develop. You’ll be given the opportunity to reflect on the different settings you’ve experienced to ensure you have a deep understanding of the complexities of your work as a qualified teacher. You’ll work with teachers, learners, a range of professionals and additional adults.

Requisitos: You must hold a degree from a UK higher education institution or equivalent*. If you are applying for the Secondary route, it is expected that your degree will be related to your subject specialism to ensure an appropriate level of subject knowledge.

School mentor

A school mentor will monitor your progress; you’ll meet them on a regular basis throughout the assessment period.

Formative review points

There will be formative review points to monitor progress during the training period. These review points, led by school colleagues, will consider progress in professional learning and facilitate developmental target setting.


Course assessment

You’ll need to provide evidence, in a portfolio, to show that all of the Teachers’ Standards have been met.

This might include:

·         Written lesson observations

·         Professional dialogue in reviews of progress and targets

·         ‘Witness statements’ – accounts of specific events and conversations which are particularly pertinent to attainment of the Teachers’ Standards (2012).

·         Assessment reports including a final written report summarising progress and attainment

·         Records of professional development activities

·         Subject knowledge audits

·         A final claim supported by the collection of evidence submitted in the PLPP

Towards the end of the assessment period, school and university based professionals will meet with you to discuss your progress and scrutinise evidence. If you’re successful you’ll be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status.


During the assessment period, you should:

·         set high expectations to inspire, motivate and challenge pupils and promote good progress and outcomes;

·         plan and teach well-structured lessons and adapt teaching to meet the needs of all pupils;

·         use appropriate formative and summative tools effectively to assess pupil learning in order to secure good progress;

·         demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge;

·         manage behaviour effectively to ensure an appropriate learning environment for all pupils;

·         support the ethos of the school/setting and demonstrate consistently high standards of personal and professional behaviour including personal attendance and punctuality;

·         show initiative by contributing to curriculum planning and develop effective and appropriate learning resources;

·         be proactive in seeking opportunities to develop their own professional practice and develop a rigorous and well organized evidence base of his/her professional learning and practice;

·         constantly evaluate and review their practice, setting targets for progress.
