If you are an experienced unqualified teacher, but ineligible for the Assessment Only route, it may be possible to do an accelerated route. To support your training you could access a tax-free bursary or scholarship. Alternatively, you could earn a salary.
Accelerated courses offer a full-time intensive training option for highly experienced and skilled individuals capable of achieving qualified teacher status over a shorter period than the standard one year. Completing an accelerated course will typically take two terms, meaning you could secure a teaching job sooner than on other programmes.
If you’re interested in training on an accelerated course, we recommend contacting providers directly to see if this is something they offer.
Not sure if this is the route for you?
