Are you an experienced teacher who would like to complete a formal qualification to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)?
If so, then Oxford Brookes can offer you an Assessment Only Route leading to QTS.
We are pleased to announce that Oxford Brookes University is one of a restricted number of organisations that have been selected by the DfE/TRA to offer the ‘Assessment Only’ (AO) route to QTS.
The Assessment only route is suitable for experienced graduate instructors who have been teaching for 2 years or more and would like to complete a formal qualification to gain QTS. It is also suitable if you have substantial teaching experience in either the public or private sector but have not yet gained QTS.
Applicants for the AO Route programme should have been teaching as an unqualified teacher for at least two years before application.
The total cost of the AO route is:
Fees can be paid in two instalments (at the Initial assessment and Final assessment) on request
If you are interested in applying for this route to gain QTS you will need a school to recommend you. If you need further information or clarification, please contact Lorna Shires, Principal Lecturer, Teacher Development, Safeguarding Lead for School of Education (firstname.lastname@example.org).
