From our partner TES, Straight to Teaching is a unique, online, and in-school professional development programme and Assessment Only route aimed at suitable school staff (such as unqualified teachers, high level teaching assistants or teaching assistants) who want to become fully qualified teachers. The programme supports and prepares you to meet the Teachers’ Standards and provides you with the opportunity to be independently assessed and awarded QTS.
If you wish to make the transition from a school support role like a teaching assistant to qualified teacher, this course offers an unparalleled opportunity to obtain QTS without leaving your current school. It is a high quality, low-cost alternative to initial teacher training that is personalised to you and your school. This flexible and accessible professional QTS development programme leads to independent QTS assessment and, on successful completion, the award of Qualified Teacher Status.
