The AO Route to Qualified Teacher Status is a fast-track route (maximum 12 weeks) to gain Qualified Teacher Status for teachers with two or more years’ teaching experience.

Qualified Teacher Status is the United Kingdom’s professional accreditation for teaching. It is often required by schools in the UK. The University of Buckingham is one of the leading providers of QTS.

The Assessment Only Route is a fast-track route (maximum 12 weeks) to gain Qualified Teacher Status for teachers with two or more years’ teaching experience.

Applications are welcome from teachers, who do not hold Qualified Teacher Status, currently teaching in a school in the UK or abroad, providing they meet the necessary criteria. Schools may be state-maintained or independent. International schools abroad must be following the English national curriculum or IB curriculum.

Course content

Assessment Only candidates may apply for a September, January or April start date.

The AO Route to Qualified Teacher Status consists of three Assessment Processes.

The first is an assessment of the candidate’s application, which may include a request to supply additional information. Once a candidate is accepted onto the route, they will undergo two assessment days in their school. The Initial Assessment Day will judge whether the candidate is likely to meet all of the QTS Teachers’ Standards within a maximum 12 week period without any further training. The Final Assessment Day will take place within 12 weeks from the Initial Assessment and will determine whether the candidate meets all of the Teachers’ Standards.

In order to assess many of the criteria for the award of QTS, during the initial assessment day the Tutor will interview the candidate, hold meetings with the candidate’s line manager, mentor and the school’s professional tutor, conduct at least 3 lesson observations and will scrutinize the candidate’s planning, marking, report writing and professional development. The candidate will also be required to produce a Teaching & Learning File (TLF). This serves as a portfolio of evidence in support of the candidate’s application for passing the Teachers’ Standards. The file is used by the candidate to showcase evidence over time in meeting the Teachers’ Standards.

Entry requirements

For entry onto the Assessment Only Route, you will be expected to have the following qualifications:

- Bachelor’s Degree
- GCSE in English and Math, and Science (if applying for Primary) at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent).
- You must be employed at a school
- English level IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 or above in each component) or equivalent

All international applicants, who do not hold a GCSE grade C or level 4 or above in English Language (or an equivalent qualification), must have IELTS or TOEFL certificate meeting the English Language requirements set out by the university.

English Language Requirements

If any of the qualifications were awarded outside the UK, the university will also require a statement of comparability from NARIC UK - https://www.naric.org.uk/Qualifications/Default.aspx

In addition, you must:

- Have two years’ teaching experience in at least two contrasting schools, one of which may be your current school. (For candidates who have taught in only one school, a minimum three-week teaching placement in another school will be required prior to the start of the course.)
- Demonstrate that you meet all of the Teaching Standards across the age-range of assessment, as stipulated by the Department of Education.
- Be teaching your subject to full classes for at least 50% (approximately 12 hours per week) of a full school timetable in the assessed age range
- Demonstrate competence in basic literacy and numeracy.
- Show you have the health and physical capacity to teach.
- Satisfy criteria based on suitability and aptitude for teaching. This includes Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) criminal records check and children’s barred list information. Candidates who are based outside the UK must undergo the same checks as all other staff in the schools and colleges they are employed at. In addition, further checks may be carried out. The Home Office has published guidance on criminal record checks for overseas applicants.

The employing school must be able to fully support a candidate through the course, enabling them to demonstrate all of the Teachers’ Standards across the full age and ability range of training.

Fees

Tuition Fee: £3,024

International trainees will also be expected to cover any visa, flight, accommodation, travel and sustenance costs incurred whilst the University tutor visits.

对于有两年或两年以上教学经验的教师来说,英国教师资格证(QTS)评估项目(AO)是获得英国教师资格证(QTS)的快速通道(最长12周)。

QTS是英国对教师的专业认证。它通常是英国学校招聘教师的硬性要求。白金汉大学是英国教师资格证(QTS)的主要培训提供方之一。

本项目(通过一个为期12周的评估过程)是获取该资格认证的快捷途径,项目面向具有两年或两年以上教学经验教师开放。

本课程适合尚未取得英国教师资格证(QTS),同时正在英国或海外的学校任教,并且符合必要标准的教师申请。申请人任职的学校可以是公立学校或私立学校。英国以外地区的国际化学校必须使用英式课程体系或IB课程体系。

课程内容

对本课程感兴趣的申请者可以选择9月、1月或4月作为开课时间。

教师资格认证途径包括三个评估过程,包括对申请材料的评估及两个在校评估日。

第一步将对申请人的申请材料进行评估,包括可能要求申请人提供额外的信息或材料。一旦被录取,申请人将在任职学校接受两个的评估日。第一个评估日将用来判断候选人是否有可能在不需要进一步培训的情况下,在最长12周内达到QTS标准。第二个评估日将在第一个评估日后的12周内进行,以确定候选人是否符合所有QTS所要求的教师标准。

为了对QTS标准要求的多个领域进行评估,在第一个评估日导师将面试申请人,与候选人的直线领导、导师和学校的专业指导老师召开会议, 对申请人进行至少3次课堂观察,并对申请人的课程计划、批改、报告编写和专业发展进行审查。此外,申请人还需要提供教学文件(TLF)。该文件将作为证明,以支持申请人通过QTS所要求的教师标准。以上所有文档将被申请人用来作为在一段时间内展示自己符合教师标准要求的依据。
