Courses to qualify your staff
Straight to Teaching
Straight to Teaching is a tailor-made professional development programme that will help you to take control of your teacher shortages by upskilling and retaining your teaching assistants and unqualified teachers, enabling them to meet the English Teachers’ standards and gain QTS without leaving your school*.
Assessment Only route
If you have unqualified teachers and teaching assistants with significant teaching experience you could help them to achieve Qualified Teacher Status, and put more teachers in your classrooms, in as little as one term through Assessment Only route.
International Postgraduate Certificate in Education (iPGCE)
Validated by the University of East London, the iPGCE is a blended learning programme that will increase the quality of teaching in your school by up-skilling and developing your school staff to the level of professional competence equivalent to that of a new teacher.
