Course summary

Overview

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. It is expected that you have a significant teaching role in a school/setting that is prepared to support you through the assessment period.

How will I be assessed?

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
  • 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.

Careers

The Assessment Only route culminates in Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This will enable you to apply for a range of teaching posts and other education based employment.
