AO Route to QTS

The 12 week programme of assessment results in the recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

ESP is offering the AO Route to QTS in collaboration with Two Mile Ash ITTP, a DfE accredited provider. Our AO Route to QTS is available to teachers in all phases of maintained schools, academies, independent schools and British schools overseas.

The AO Route with ESP is followed by a term of fast-tracked NQT induction through our NQT AB service. Eligible unqualified teachers within your school will therefore become fully qualified in no more than 2 terms. This makes the ESP combined offer of Assessment Only Route plus NQT induction unique as we are the only national provider to include NQT induction within our QTS programme.
