Beschreibung

The Assessment Only (AO) route is a self funded route to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) that does not require a period of training. It is suitable for very experienced graduate practitioners from UK or overseas who have taught in at least two schools in the UK but do not have QTS. Candidates will need to demonstrate that they are able to meet all the standards for QTS without further training.



The AO is a route to QTS only. Candidates who have withdrawn from, failed or been turned down for other QTS routes will not normally be considered for the AO route.



How long should the AO process take?



Once accepted candidates are expected to qualify in 12 weeks.

Themenkreis

This is not a training programme. Instead, it is a selection and assessment process.

Following receipt of a complete and suitable application the process is as follows:

Stage 1: Selection

Part 1: Confirmation of qualifications, experience and employment status via interview at Middlesex University with a teacher training tutor. Entry requirements will be checked and candidates will be advised about preparing for Part 2 of the selection process.

Part 2: Formative assessment, suitability check and development planning. This is carried out by a University tutor and school representative(s) in the school setting who will confirm your evidence claim, understanding and experience and establish your suitability for this route. It will include lesson observation and those interviewed will be expected to communicate in Standard English. Where sufficient evidence is identified, the tutor will approve the candidate for assessment and support the candidate in preparing a development plan. This will identify any weaknesses and gaps in evidence and set targets for the candidate, which may include elements of training/professional development and time frame in which to qualify. Candidates must provide proof of successful completion of the QTS skills tests. Candidates who fail the tests on three occasions will not be able to complete Stage 2 and will not be eligible for QTS assessment.

Stage 2: Assessment

Part 1: Initial assessment.

This will include a summative interview and observation, carried out by the teacher training tutor, shortly before final assessment and moderation, in order to confirm that targets have been met and the scope of evidence collected is sufficient. The tutor will provides written feedback on performance and make an assessment judgement about QTS. Initial assessments can be arranged after 6 weeks of the assessed period and before final assessment/moderation in week 12. This allows candidates to present supplementary evidence at the final assessment stage if required.

Part 2: Final assessment/ moderation

This will include interviews, lesson observation(s) and scrutiny of the portfolio of evidence. It will be carried out by a different assessor who will seek to confirm and moderate assessment judgments.

How are candidates supported during the process?

Candidates are approved for assessment by an experienced Initial Teacher Training (ITT) tutor who aims to ensure that candidates are fully conversant with the teaching standards and requirements for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

The employing school will provide a specialist mentor who has been trained by an ITT provider. The mentor will meet regularly with the candidate, provide guidance and support, regularly observes the candidate teach and provide feedback which addresses the Teacher Standards.

What happens when the candidate is judged to pass and meet the QTS Standards?

We notify the National College for Teaching and Learning and QTS will be awarded. A certificate will be sent to the candidate.

Will I have to undergo the NQT induction Year?

All candidates who are assessed and recommended for QTS become Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs). Information about statutory arrangements for the induction of NQTs can be found online.
