QTS in Four HoursWatch
So my QT(Sies): you were doubting the veracity of a 10-15 hour fast track to become QTS - there's even a route to do this in four hours:
The number of teachers gaining qualified status (QTS) through an “assessment-only” route – involving about four hours of lesson observation and no further training – has more than doubled in the past three years.
And I say: but OF COURSE they are going to find fault with GCSEs, if they are going to charge for the "equivalency" test !!!
An additional £144 for a “GCSE equivalency test” in maths, English and sciences if they do not have the required C grade at GCSE. The equivalency test is designed by experts for Educate Teacher Training and is not checked by Ofsted, a spokesperson said.
