About the course
This course is a 10 month course leading to PGCE (60 Masters credits), which includes KS5 and QTS. 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.
The interviews will involve a presentation, interview, subject based written task and numeracy task and completion of a subject audit. Candidates should take their portfolio to interview with them.
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.
The course fees for 2020/2021 are as follows:
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.
