At the end of their training successful trainees will be awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Assessments will take place in the following format:

For Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

Assessment is ongoing throughout the year, and includes observation of your practice and evidence of your success from mentors, tutors and yourself. Trainees are assessed against the NIoT ITT curriculum as the year progresses.

For Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)

Assessment is by three master’s level assignments, which are both academically robust and grounded in your day-to-day practice.

NIoT works in partnership with the University of Birmingham. The University of Birmingham is the validating university and has responsibility for awarding the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) element of the programme.
