Assessment only route to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

Share:

If you are a very experienced primary teacher, but do not have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), this course offers an assessment only route to gaining QTS.

Since 2002 the University of Gloucestershire has been a successful provider, supporting over 1000 teachers to gain QTS. We have comprehensive and detailed documentation to support you and a team of very experienced assessors.

Our approach is a tested route to success. We provide pre-interview guidance, a comprehensive handbook, regarded by former teachers as ‘excellent’, and online and telephone support from an experienced tutor, as you develop your portfolio.
