About the course

This course leads to QTS. It can be 11-16 or 11-18. A PGCE (60 Master's credits), which includes KS5 is optional and can be added at a small additional cost. The course runs in Colchester and the surrounding area. Trainees have a mentor throughout the course and are very well supported in a long established training programme.

Interview process

The interview will involve a presentation, interview, subject based written task and numeracy task and completion of a subject audit.

How school placements work

There are two school placements throughout the year to enable trainees to access a range of schools and courses. Visits to special schools and primary schools are also included. Longer placements in special schools may be possible. NETT arranges placements in most cases although applicants can also do this.

Salary

Trainees are paid by the school on the unqualified teacher's pay scale.

Financial support

Financial support isn’t available for this course because it comes with a salary.

If you choose a course without a salary, you may be eligible for financial support while you study, including bursaries, scholarships and loans.

Requirements

Qualifications

Applicants require a GCSE grade 4/C or appropriate equivalence in English and Maths. A degree is also required. It is expected that an applicant's degree will be related to the subject they wish to teach, although often we can train with a good A level and a SKE course. Please ask.
