Assessment Only QTS

The ideal route into teaching for experienced unqualified teachers

The assessment only route (AO) is designed for experienced unqualified teachers who wish to gain QTS. The AO route is not a training route and you must be teaching a full timetable in school and meeting the Teachers' Standards already.

In order to qualify for the AO route you must have:

  • At least two years teaching experience including planning, teaching and assessment in two or more education settings
  • UK Honours degree or equivalent
  • GCSE Maths, English at grade 4, C or equivalent
  • Also GCSE Science at grade 4, C or equivalent for the primary AO route
