The criteria for successful completion of the course and the award of QTS, are set out in the Teacher's Standards, together with detailed procedures for assessment. Successful Associate Teachers, gaining QTS, will have consistently demonstrated:
There are no final written examinations for QTS.
Assessments are made by the Course Team, delegated staff, school Professional tutors, mentors, subject specialists and an External Moderator. Those trainees who study the PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) with the University of Brighton will be assessed entirely by the criteria and assessors at the University. Whilst we will support the process, KMT will not be involved in the assessment of modules for the PGCE.
A successful trainee at the end of the course, will be awarded QTS by KMT.
Those opting for the additional PGCE, will have the PGCE awarded separately, by the University Partner.
