What qualifications do you need to become an assessor?

Before becoming a qualified assessor, you’ll have to obtain an assessing qualification at an accredited institution, such as Oxbridge. Once you’ve completed this, you’ll receive a Certificate of Competence and Statement Of Results (SOR). Now you can register with an Education and Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA), and that’s that; you’re now a qualified assessor.

How do I become a teacher without a degree?

While this is an unusual route to becoming a teacher, it’s certainly possible. First, you have to work towards getting a Diploma in Education and Training (DET). In order to qualify for this, you’ll need to have at least Level 2 skills in Maths and English, but if you’re thinking of teaching these subjects, you’ll need a Level 3. Additionally, you’ll have to be able to evidence at least 100 hours of teaching experience.  

After obtaining your DET, you can apply for QTLS and obtain an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) certificate. After this, you’ll need to register for the Professional Formation, leading to the QTLS.

During this time, you’ll spend both academic time on campus and several weeks in school placements, getting hands-on experience.

Explain the UK Education System – Key Stages

The UK educational system is divided into primary and secondary schools, with a few authorities running a three-tier system. The key stages include:

  • Early years foundation stage (EYFS): 0-5-year-olds – nursery and reception
  • Key Stage 1: 5-7 year olds – school years 1-2
  • Key Stage 2: 7-11 year olds – school years 3-6
  • Key Stage 3: 11-14 year olds – school years 7-9
  • Key Stage 4: 14-16 year olds – school years 10-11
  • Post-16 teaching

Our teaching and assessing courses focus on post-16 education.
