If you already have significant teaching experience in a UK school and are looking to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without the need for further training, this Assessment Only (AO) route is ideal. The assessment period can range from 6-12 weeks depending on the individual. After gaining your recommendation for QTS, you will need to complete an induction Early Career Teacher (ECT) year at your supporting school.
You must demonstrate that you are already teaching at either a "good" or "outstanding" level against the Teachers' Standards and be ready to be formally assessed by a university tutor in your school.
