Are you already working in a school as an unqualified teacher?
Have you considered the Assessment Route?
The Assessment Only route is designed for those teaching in schools who would be eligible to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without undertaking a full QTS Initial Teacher Training Programme.
As this route into teaching has no training associated with it, the applicant should be currently teaching at a good or better standard. She / He will have already ‘learned on the job’ and must be able to meet the standards required for all 8 of the QTS standards which also includes Part 2.
It is expected that the applicant is currently working in a school teaching the appropriate age and ability range following national curriculum and a UK public examination syllabus. The minimum length of teaching full classes full time would be at least 2 years, with responsibility for the pupils’ progress.
