Assessment Only route to QTS

There is no funding from Student Finance or the DfE/NCTL available for this route, so candidates are fully self-funded.
Our fee for this route is £2, 000.

This includes:

  • Pre-assessment materials and folder for compilation of evidence
  • Induction meeting
  • Support from a named member of the YTCA SCITT team
  • Assessment visit(s) from a YTCA SCITT Assessment Only Assessor
  • Registration with the NCTL and associated administration for the recommendation for QTS
  • Enhanced DBS application, where the candidate does not have Enhanced DBS Clearance subscribed to the Update Service
  • Health questionnaire checks

The fee is payable in the following ways:

  • Option 1 – in full before the commencement of the course
  • Option 2 – in two instalments – £1,000 prior to commencement of the place; £1,000 prior to completion of the assessment
  • Option 3 – in three instalments – £1, 000 prior to commencement of the place; £500 halfway through the assessment; £500 prior to completion of the assessment.
  • You must complete payment of your fees before your assessment period (up to 12 weeks maximum) ends. Non-payment will result in your assessment being incomplete and you will not be recommended for QTS.

All Assessment Only candidates who are successful in being accepted onto this route must pay 50% – £1, 000 – of the full cost of this route prior to starting their assessment period. This is non-refundable.
