Assessment Only

The assessment only route is available for graduates who have taught unqualified for a number of years, in more than one school.

This experience can include teaching within independent schools and can be in the UK or overseas. Passing the assessment leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The school will work with an initial teacher training (ITT) provider to carry out the assessment.

For more information about Assessment Only see the Department for Education Get into Teaching website.
