Gain Qualified Teacher Status in Primary or Secondary education via the Assessment Only Route
Since September 2012, we have offered the highly successful Assessment Only route, for suitably qualified and experienced candidates the opportunity to gain Qualified Teacher Status without the need for extensive training.
Gaining QTS will enable you to teach in any school in the country whether state-maintained, independent or an academy.
For Assessment Only, the assessment phase would normally be over 8-10 weeks after successful completion of the Initial Assessment Visit by a university assessor.
Candidates need to meet DfE compliancy criteria and required teaching experience.
There is no expectation of training within this route; however, the school is expected to give high levels of professional guidance and support.
This route covers a large geographical area including:
- Isle of Wight
- West Suessex
- London borders
Long and distinguished history of teacher training
Chichester has a long and distinguished history in teacher training at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and is renowned for academic excellence and student satisfaction.
Our Institute of Education is recognised nationally as a centre of excellence for teacher education and research development.
Such a positive outcome would not have been achieved without the vital contribution that school-based colleagues (mentors, professional tutors, class teachers, headteachers) make on a regular basis to the partnership.
The commitment we share in shaping, educating and training the next generation of teachers forms the basis for continued high-quality ITT provision at Chichester.
