About Assessment Only Route to Qualified Teacher Status (Secondary School Level) at University of Greenwich

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 currentlyoffer this programme for experienced teachers of Science, Maths, ModernLanguages, 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.
