The University of Buckingham prides itself as one of the UK's leading providers of Qualified Teachers Status (QTS). The Assessment Only 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. In the recent years, many internationally based UK schools have also began requiring their teachers to hold QTS to ensure good teaching standard in their classrooms.

Applications are welcome from teachers, who do not already hold Qualified Teacher Status and are currently teaching at a school in China, providing they meet the necessary criteria.

Qualifying Schools may be public or independent, however, in addition to the Chinese National Curriculum (where applicable), the schools must be following either UK or IB curriculum and the lessons following UK/IB curriculum should be conducted in English.

Assessment Only QTS candidates may apply for September, January or April start dates.

Please note that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, if a local tutor is not available, the dates may be affected for China based teachers, due to difficulties surrounding international travel.

The AO Route to Qualified Teacher Status:

Assessment of the candidate’s application, which may include a request to supply additional information.                                                                                                                 

Two assessment days at the candidate’s 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.       

Producing and submitting Teaching & Learning File (TLF).                                                   This serves as a portfolio of evidence in support of the candidate’s application for passing the Teachers’ Standards.

白金汉大学是提供英国教师资格证(QTS)的领军高校之一。英国教师资格证评估项目(AO QTS)是为具有两年或两年以上教学经验的教师获得合格教师身份的快速通道(最多12周)。

QTS是英国对教师的专业认证。近年来,国际范围内的很多英国学校也开始要求其教师拥有QTS,以确保良好的教学质量。

本课程适合尚未取得英国教师资格证(QTS),同时正在中国的学校任教,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。除了中国的课程体系(在适用的情况下),申请人所任职学校必须使用英式课程体系或IB课程体系,并且应以英语进行上课。

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。

请注意,由于目前持续的新冠疫情,如果我们不能提供本土导师,则中国教师的项目开始日期可能会因为国际旅行限制而受到影响。

课程内容

为评估申请人,我们可能会要求申请人提供更多信息。

教师资格认证途径包括两个在申请人学校的评估日。

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要求的教师标准。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候选人,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,并对申请人的教案、批改、报告编写和专业发展进行审查。

此外,候选人还需要准备和上传教学文件(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。

QTS的授予和合格导师访问您所在学校,进行观察和绩效评估是离不开的。除了课程学费外,您还需要支付导师访问费用,例如可能会涉及到的国际航班及食宿。

如何申请

受新型冠状病毒影响,目前国际旅行受到限制。这一前所未有的挑战使得我们可能无法在2021年为所有符合条件的申请人提供帮助。因此,白金汉大学正在与BISE紧密合作,探索由符合白金汉大学要求的本土导师提供到校观察和评估的可能性。我们将严格按照导师访问学员所在地的可能性来对申请人提供支持。

如果您对我们的QTS评估项目感兴趣,请通过BISE平台提出申请。我们将协助您进行初步评估,确定是否符合录取条件。
