Working with our partner provider Essex Primary SCITT  we are offering very high quality training for graduates wishing to teach in primary schools through a one-year full time school based route leading to Qualified Teacher Status.

‘Fantastically organised and well structured course. The taught programme is very comprehensive and full of brilliant ideas that you can take, use and adapt.’


‘Tutors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful and deliver sessions in an engaging way. I feel that I am now equipped to teach my own class confidently and creatively.’


‘Fantastic really supportive school, fantastic staff, experienced mentor who was incredible. Cannot put into words how good this experience was.’


‘I feel that the course gave us the knowledge and skills to make us highly employable in a very competitive market.’


‘I can’t rate the course more highly. The way the course is structured allows you to get to know what life is like in a school whilst gradually building up your teaching experience. You are utterly supported along the way by the tutors and mentors who are out to give you the very best start in your career as a teacher. Certainly, for me this was the best pathway to take to QTS.’


‘I feel that this is a fantastic way to train as a teacher, as the trainee is part of the school team from day 1.’
