Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) forms
AST1 is the application form
This form must be completed by each AST candidate and then passed to his or her headteacher, who will: add their comments; complete relevant declarations; and send it to the national assessment agency. They will arrange for the candidate to be assessed.
Please note that there is a separate application form for each grade of teacher, that is Main Scale, Post-Threshold and Excellent Teacher.
In order to monitor equal opportunities issues relating to AST applicants we ask that you complete a short questionnaire and send this with your AST1.
AST2 is the form which provides details of AST appointments
This form should be completed by the headteacher (or delegated representative) of the school in which the AST will be based. A blank AST2 form will be sent to the school with the report of the assessment, and should be returned to the national assessment agency as soon as possible.
