Course overview

If you are already employed in a school, the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) assessment-only programme is a way to certify your teaching in line with the teachers’ standards.

It means if you have a lot of school-based experience you can gain QTS status without an academic award such as a PGCE.

You must have experience of teaching the English National Curriculum across at least two age and ability ranges in two different settings.

What you'll study

This is a very demanding course, but you will have high-quality professional and personal support from tutors and school staff.

You will create an Individual Development Portfolio (IDP), which you will use to reflect on your personal and professional development. You will also use it to set targets with support from your mentor and link tutor

Your link tutor will also be your personal tutor.
