The ‘Assessment Only’ route
If you are an experienced teacher with a degree, you can apply for a place on the Assessment Only (AO) route to qualified teacher status (QTS). Please contact the Teacher Education team for further advice on firstname.lastname@example.org
The AO route allows you to demonstrate that you already meet all of the standards for QTS, without the need for any further training. You will need to present detailed evidence, and your teaching will be assessed in a school by an accredited and approved provider. The University of Hull is accredited and approved to offer this option. You must also take the professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy before you can be accepted onto the route.
Our teaching and learning
Research-led learning and teaching at the University of Hull is predicated on meaningful talk and dialogic learning. Teaching sessions provide opportunities for students to lead learning with authentic situations and critical incidents. Enquiry-based cooperative work builds a community of learners who work with our partnership schools to develop the skills to become outstanding teachers.
A word from one of our school partners
‘Tollbar MAT works exclusively with the University of Hull for all its School Direct needs. The relationship is built around regular communication and a recognition of the need for flexibility where necessary in the programme. We are so pleased with the University that we have now expanded provision to include a Primary programme.
Vice Principal, Tollbar Academy, Grimsby.
Feedback from a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) partner
My thanks to the University of Hull staff for all their support this year. The University has been everything we hoped for and more. We are delighted that all of our trainees have passed all of their assignments and many at a very high level. Evidence to date suggests that the addition of the PGCE has made a significant difference to our trainees and we hope that the ‘added-value’ carries forward with them into and beyond their NQT year.
