About the course

A one year, full-time, school based route.

Trainees will achieve QTS and have the option to buy-in to a Masters Programme with the University of Derby for the award of PGCE. The cost of this is £1950 and payable in 3 installments.

Training is majority school-based with some centre-based training.

In school you will work closely with a subject / phase specific mentor and the ITT coordinator.

You will also have an external tutor who works for the Essex Schools TT

Partnership

Interview process

You will be invited to an interview in the lead school or one of our partner schools. This interview could include: an activity with pupils eg teaching part of a lesson, or taking a group activity; a pupil panel interview; a written task and a formal interview with a small panel of representatives from the school and wider School Direct partnership. If successful, you will be given a conditional offer of a place to train.

How school placements work

Trainees will complete training in two different schools during the course of the year.

Typically trainees spend the autumn term in their host school and then go to a second placement school during the first part of the Spring term and then return to their host school for the remainder of the year. Trainees are in school 4 days a week and attend training on the 5th day.

We endeavour to keep travelling time to school to a minimum so we will take into account your home address when allocating a school.
