Trainees will be assessed against the Teachers’ Standards leading to a recommendation of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Meeting the standards is a requirement for all trainee teachers, regardless of the ITT route. There will be a gradual teaching commitment as the year progresses which will never be more than 80% of the timetable (during the final weeks of the summer term) and starts with as little as a lesson per week. There will also be a weekly observation by the Teacher Tutor and a half termly observation by an external Quality Assurance Mentor from the Chepping View SCITT team. End of placement summative reports are written at identified points during the year. The Teachers’ Standards form the basis for all on-going assessments and judgements which are made regularly throughout the programme.
Chepping View Primary Academy SCITT is responsible for monitoring the trainee, along with the partnership school. A successful year will lead to a final report and a recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status.
Trainees who successfully complete the PGCE qualification will be awarded 60 master’s credits by Oxford Brookes University.
