Additional Services:


Newly qualified teacher support (NQT)

It’s important your school provides the right newly qualified teacher support. With an NQT in your school you must satisfy your statutory obligations, but it’s also a great time to kick start the career of a bright, enthusiastic new teacher.

Our expert team can provide support, advice and resources to set newly qualified teachers on the path for a successful career.


Advanced skills teachers assessment

Advanced skills teachers (ASTs) are teaching professionals who are outstanding practitioners in the classroom and regarded as leading teachers within their school. In order to become an AST, teachers in your school must be externally assessed. We carry out all AST assessments in England and Wales, on behalf of the Department for Education.

We also provide assessment for Excellent Teachers (ETs).
