Our Assessment Only Route is an accredited process that enables those graduates who have been teaching for two years to be awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK, without the need for further study. We offer in-depth guidance and support, complimented by our Teacher Standards Program, whilst also arranging the vital work placements necessary for success.

We are proud of our 100% pass rate for teachers looking to gain QTS.


In order to qualify for AOR, teachers will have at least 2 years’ experience of teaching across two consecutive key stages with classes of no fewer than 15 students.

Primary candidates will be expected to teach the full range of National Curriculum subjects and both primary and secondary candidates should have taught a range of abilities within both age ranges

Those who wish to gain the qualification through the AOR might include experienced graduate teachers without QTS who are:

  • Currently teaching in schools or academies
  • Currently teaching in UK schools overseas
  • Trained to teach in the further education sector
  • Teaching in the independent school sector

The Assessment Only Route is the best way for unqualified teachers to gain QTS in the UK, so get in touch today if you’re looking to hire talented teachers from abroad.
