Information about the course

The following text can be put on your website or presentations about the Straight to Teaching programme. If you require any further or specific information about the programme or Tes Institute please contact our team on

Straight to Teaching is a tailor-made professional development programme that helps existing school staff gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) without leaving their school. It is designed for teaching assistants, HLTAs and other suitable school staff who have already completed some teaching and are looking to become a  fully qualified teacher. Each course is tailored to an individual's existing teaching experience, meaning the more relevant teaching already completed, the shorter the programme will be.

Straight to Teaching is available at [insert your school/group name] and is provided by Tes Institute, a leading teacher training and development provider. Since 2013, they have helped over 1,200 school staff on their journey towards QTS and offer a range of training and CPD courses for teachers and schools. [insert your school/group name] has partnered with Tes Institute to make this route available to suitable staff at a discounted rate. If you are interested in finding out more please contact [insert name/job role at school/group] to discuss the programme in more detail.

There is also some further information about how the programme works on the enquiry page.

Case studies and videos

We have produced a number of case studies that can be found here. A selection of teachers, headteachers and tutors have shared their experiences about the programme in a series of videos that can be found here and used to promote the programme.
