Assessment only Route
Asian College of Teachers provides an authentic route to earn a teaching qualification through Assessment only Route which makes way for those working teachers who have considerable experience of teaching in schools but do not possess a formal teaching qualification or Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). The Assessment only Route allows an unqualified teacher-paid or unpaid to gain formal teaching certification only after meeting the entire Teachers' Standards for either Primary or Secondary teaching. For this route, following successful Preliminary and Selection Stages, it is expected the trainees will be enrolled on the Assessment Stage. The timescale is individually assessed and designed to ensure the trainees have time to provide sufficient opportunities to gather evidence for all the Teacher's Standards. Assessment only Route does not include any training but is extremely beneficial for unqualified teachers with teaching experience to help in their career advancement.
