Our Trust of Schools

Assessment Only

South West Teacher Training works with partners in the South West of England to provide an Assessment Only route to achieving Qualified Teacher Status. Following a short programme, Assessment Only candidates can achieve the award of QTS, while working on the job, within a few months in most cases.

This route is an excellent option for experienced practitioners who meet a very specific set of criteria, including but not limited to:

  • At least two years teaching experience as an unqualified teacher
  • Experience of teaching in at least two different settings
  • GCSEs in English and Maths at Grade C/Level 4 or better
  • An honours degree
  • Relevant references stating that the candidate is working at the Teachers’ Standards
  • Employment in a school in a teaching role in the South West of England.

Candidates can express an interest by emailing [email protected] with brief details of their eligibility.
