The Training School at OHC&AT currently offers the following teacher training routes:
Specialist SEND – DET/ProfCGE: In Service training post-14 sector leading to QTLS
Diploma in Education and Training/ProfGCE – specialist pathway – SEND
This offers an excellent route to train as a teacher part-time whilst you work. The programme is aimed mainly at those wanting to teach in the post-14 sector, in schools or colleges. There are two programmes which are taught alongside each other: the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (ProfGCE) and Diploma in Education and Training (DET).
Assessment Only: Straight to teaching – School led training leading to QTS – with TES
If you’re an experienced, non-qualified teacher with a degree, you can achieve qualified teacher status (QTS) without having to do any further training. Assessment Only allows you to demonstrate that you already meet all of the standards for QTS.
To achieve QTS via the Assessment Only route, we will support you to present detailed evidence that you meet the standards. Your teaching will be assessed in a school by an accredited and approved Assessment Only provider. You will also need to take the professional skills test in literacy and numeracy before you can be accepted onto the route.
This way of achieving QTS is only available to unqualified teachers who have taught in at least two schools, early years and/or further education settings.
