Assessment Only Route to Qualified Teacher Status (Secondary School Level)

Course content

The Assessment Only route to QTS is a means to formal qualification for experienced but unqualified teachers on the basis of their significant experience in schools. At the University of Greenwich we currently offer this programme for experienced teachers of Science, Maths, Modern Languages, PE, Dance and Music in secondary schools. We consider applications from teachers who are already employed and established in schools in London and the South East. For this programme relevant teaching experience involves being responsible for planning, teaching and assessment of classes of, typically, 20 pupils or more.

It is important to stress that the AO route does not include any training element and therefore is not a substitute for more extensive initial teacher training routes such as PGCE and School Direct. Successful applicants are putting themselves forward to be assessed against the Teachers' Standards on the basis of experience supported by appropriate evidence.

The aims of the programme are:

- To develop a plan and portfolio of evidence
- To complete in-school observation of teaching by university tutor/senior leaders in school
- To achieve final assessment of evidence and teaching against teachers' standards.

Education - General

Our programmes in education benefit post graduate professionals and researchers from a wide range of backgrounds. Focus on independent research. Or combine taught coursework with a supervised thesis. You can tailor your programme to suit your own interests and ambitions.

Fees and finance

Your time at university should be enjoyable and rewarding, and it is important that it is not spoilt by unnecessary financial worries. We recommend that you spend time planning your finances, both before coming to university and while you are here. We can offer advice on living costs and budgeting, as well as on awards, allowances and loans.


Students will be assessed through a portfolio of evidence and observation of their teaching.

Professional recognition

Successful completion of this programme entitles you to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Career options

Successful completion of the programme is likely to give applicants greater job security in their current post as well as qualifying them to teach in other schools.
