Assessment-Only Route to Qualified Teacher Status
Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate that they are a reflective practitioner who has met the Teachers� Standards and are able to demonstrate that they can apply their skills, knowledge and understanding effectively and flexibly in a wide range of school settings. During the assessment period your supporting school will need to ensure that you have sufficient opportunity to meet the Teachers' Standards. This includes ensuring that you comply with the current requirements of the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) including a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and fitness to teach.
Hold a good Honours degree (preferably 2.1 classification - we would expect that at least 50% of the degree is in the subject being taught). Hold GCSE grade C or above in mathematics and English language or equivalent. For primary teaching, candidates also need GCSE grade C or above in Science. Please note that Key Skills qualifications, Equivalence Tests and OCR Level 2 adult literacy and numeracy are not acceptable alternatives. You must have passed the QTS Skills Tests in numeracy and literacy (tests must be taken before you can submit an application).
Assessment is made via the production of a portfolio of evidence measured against the Teachers� Standards, the observation of successful teaching by school and university staff, a subject knowledge assessment, and a final viva. You will have been observed teaching by your sponsoring school and your teaching must have been regularly graded as good or outstanding.
