Ashton on Mersey SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training) is an Accredited Provider of the ‘Assessment Only’ Route to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). This is designed for graduates with experience of teaching (in at least two schools or settings) and who have the ability to demonstrate meeting all of the Teachers’ Standards (July, 2011) without the need for further training. In effect, the candidate must be ready for assessment at application.
The length of the process should normally be completed within 3 months. Start and end dates are negotiated with the applicant, their ‘supporting school’ and the ‘accredited provider’ (Ashton on Mersey SCITT).
