Assessment Only Route to QTS (Primary and Secondary)

Overview

This is an assessment only route to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), appropriate for very experienced graduates who have more than two years’ successful teaching experience in two or more schools, colleges or settings. Candidates will be able to demonstrate that they are already meeting the Teachers’ Standards, without further training, before the commencement of the Assessment Only process. The normal duration of the route will be three months, during which candidates will be required to demonstrate that they are meeting the Teachers’ Standards in practice through evidence collected from direct lesson observation and a portfolio of evidence.

About the Route

This route will enable successful candidates to achieve Qualified Teacher Status.  QTS is not only a valuable recognition that a teacher is meeting the Teachers’ Standards but also a pathway to career progression in the teaching profession. Bishop Grosseteste University welcomes, encourages and supports further continuing professional development  towards  MA Education following the completion of the Assessment Only route.

The Assessment Only route is appropriate for candidates who:

  • Hold a first degree or equivalent qualification granted by a United Kingdom institution or an equivalent degree or other qualification granted by a foreign institution.
  • Have substantial, successful teaching experience.
  • Have achieved a standard equivalent to a grade 4 (formerly a grade C) in GCSE English Language and Mathematics.
  • Have, in the case of those who intend to teach pupils aged 3-11, achieved a standard equivalent to a grade 4 (formerly a grade C) in a GCSE science subject, in addition to the GCSE English Language and Mathematics.
  • Have and can provide evidence of a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Candidates are usually supported by a ‘sponsoring’ school in which they are currently working as an unqualified teacher.

Assessment

Applicants will need to specify the two age ranges they would like to be assessed in. This will be in 2 of the age ranges below

  • 3-5
  • 5-7
  • 7-9
  • 9-11
  • 11-14
  • 14-16
  • 16-19

As this is an assessment only process, candidates will be required to provide evidence that the Teachers’ Standards have been met in two age ranges, with experience in at least two settings. If it is determined during the initial screening process that additional experience is needed, we will advise the candidate on how this might be gained prior to the commencement of the three month assessment period.

How To Apply

You will need to complete the application form and self-assessment in order to be considered for a place. Please return them to Admissions, Bishop Grosseteste University Lincoln, LN1 3DY or email us at enquiries@bishopg.ac.uk

Sponsoring schools will be required to sign a Partnership Agreement with Bishop Grosseteste University which recognises the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved in the process.

Application Process

The application and selection process will involve:

    • Completion of all sections of the application form, including self-assessment against the Teachers’ Standards and supporting school statements.
    • Completion of the Partnership Agreement form.
    • A formal interview at Bishop Grosseteste University, including a written task for all candidates, a subject task for secondary candidates and a mathematics task for primary candidates.
    • Observation of teaching (in the appropriate age range).
    • Scrutiny of planning files.
