BSME Schools that have undertaken a BSO Inspection and are authorised to offer NQT Induction and the Assessment Only route to QTS

In order for a School to offer:

  • NQT induction and for this to be recognised as valid by the UK government, and / or
  • the “Assessment Only” route to QTS to unqualified, graduate teachers

…… it must be a member of BSME (or one of the other four, approved bodies – NABSS, LAHC, FOBISIA and COBIS) and have successfully completed a BSO inspection. The school then has to work with an "appropriate body". The Buckinghamshire Learning Trust is such a body and is BSME’s preferred partner. Further details on each of these programmes may be found under the British Schools Overseas (BSOs) area in the left navigation.

The following link will take readers to the archived version, which shows BSO inspection reports.  This list may not be up-to-date since this part of the DfE section of the UK government website is currently under re-construction.  The best, current information with regard to BSME schools that have completed a BSO, is shown on the BSME website.

The following will take you to the new DfE / BSO section of the UK government's website.  It appears to not yet be complete and does not, at the time of writing, show the list of approved BSOs, but does contain useful information.
