About the course

Ideal for experienced graduates with substantial teaching experience, this short course is a route to gain Qualified Teaching Status for the Primary age range through an assessment of your current teaching.

You must be based in a UK school, teaching the English National Curriculum. Supported by your school or college, the course allows you to demonstrate that you already meet all the QTS standards.

A successful assessment leads to a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)* and allows you to begin your Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) induction.

Separate Assessment Only courses are available for Early Years teachers and Secondary teaching.

* The title of this award is subject to change due to an ongoing government consultation. For the latest information, please visit
