The Assessment Only route is for professionals who are already employed in a school and have a degree but do not hold Qualified Teaching Status (QTS).
Unlike our SCITT and School Direct routes, there is no training given on this route into teaching and you must compile all of your evidence to prove you meet the Teachers Standards (DfE 2012) in order for Red Kite to recommend you for the award of QTS.
Assessment Course Structure
Four weeks to compile evidence against the Teachers’ Standards and information on key areas of professional teaching, informed by their reading and their experience of working in the school they are being assessed in.
Initial assessment – observation, discussion with Mentor, suitability to teach, interview and discussion of evidence so far.
An eight-week assessed period in host school – weekly meeting with Mentors, formal and informal observation feedback.
Interim assessment and targets set.

The applicant will be rejected if the entry criteria are not met. The admissions team will seek further information prior to initial assessment on the other points if concerns arise.
Successful candidates will usually be informed of the decision to recommend them for a place at initial assessment.
