Who pays the fee to EoETT?
The school must pay the fee. If the school decides to recover some of these costs from the candidate then this is up to them and beyond the control of EoETT.

Yes – Applicants need to be employed by a school/establishment during the Assessment Only programme. The school needs to agree that they are prepared to sign the partnership agreement and support the candidate during their assessment period.
