Supporting the global education community through better teacher and school leader recruitment and development technologies
At TSP we help partners to recruit, select, and develop outstanding teachers, mentors and school leaders with our research-proven technologies. Our suite of products can be contextualised and delivered at scale around the world.
T-Screen, a situational judgment test (SJT), is used for screening and selection. It provides an assessment of candidates’ non-academic attributes (e.g., empathy, adaptability) using context-rich, video and text classroom scenarios. We have been conducting research on SJTs since 2013, with a solid foundation of evidence supporting their use in screening and selecting prospective teachers.
We also work with partners to develop bespoke SJTs particularly for large-scale national selection.

T-Insight, a scenario-based learning (SBL) approach, provides preservice and inservice teachers with the opportunity to engage with realistic classroom scenarios and to reflect on real-time, tailored feedback provided by experienced colleagues. T-Insight provides a low-risk exposure to school experiences that can be delivered remotely via personal device and/or used as the stimulus in guided seminars.
We also work with partners to develop bespoke modules for trainees, mentors and school leaders in a range of geographical contexts.

T-Select uses structured and systematic multiple mini-interviews (MMIs) to assess in real-time the personal characteristics of prospective teachers and school leaders. T-Select consists of multiple, independent stations that target a range of non-academic attributes and can be combined with T-Screen for a more comprehensive assessment of candidates.
T-Select can be delivered face to face or online.
T-Select is available on a consultancy basis only.
In this new strand, we are developing a new online approach to attract and recruit teachers and school leaders into the profession.
Using a ‘person-vocation fit’ approach, T-Attract uses ‘realistic job previews’ to identify high-quality teaching and leadership candidates. Participants engage with a set of scenarios, make judgments and receive real-time feedback from experts.
T-Attract can increase the number and quality of applicants for specific settings.
