Why Train with Us?

Training available in schools local to you

Over 92% of our trainees who gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), secure employment in Essex schools.

Over 94% of our trainees agree they have been well prepared and effectively trained to teach in school.

Our excellent training is delivered by specialist education professionals, many of whom are practising teachers.

Under the ownership of Essex County Council, we offer high quality initial teacher training.

The wellbeing of our trainees is important. In 2020 – 2021, 9 out of 10 trainees agreed that they received a positive training experience.

SCITT and School Direct Programmes lead to QTS with PGCE/Masters Level 7 credits.

We are committed to offering all prospective trainees the opportunity to gain QTS. Please let us know if you have a specific need and/or require any adjustments at the interview stage or throughout the ITT programme.
