No doubt you are all well aware of the end date, 28.06.13, and know exactly how many days are left.
Some of you though are leaving things late: portfolio of evidence, skills tests, research assignment to name but a few. This is very alarming if you wish to complete on time and be recommended for QTS. Everything has to be in place for you to be presented on the 28th June and be recommended.
I know you will not need telling but it is very much time for some of you to sense the urgency and get going. People are already finding test centres booked up until mid June and if the skills tests are not completed satisfactorily it not only puts your QTS at risk but will have an impact on your employability.
Further, the External examiners have already accessed the database and chosen who they wish to see. They will be looking at all your paperwork, talking to you, scrutinising portfolios, meeting mentors and professional tutors. Those to be seen will be notified next week. For those not being seen it is not an excuse to ease off as you will all be on the reserve list.
The M level presentation groups are being finalised with UoB and once done will be circulated.
A busy time ahead, please ensure you are ready for it!
