Teacher Training: Essex and Thames Primary SCITT

 

Become a teacher in Essex

 

Have you thought about becoming a primary school teacher?

 

Our school works in partnership with Essex and Thames Primary SCITT, offering high quality teacher training in primary education. The SCITT PGCE courses lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and the award of a PGCE in Primary Education with 60 credits towards a masters degree. 100% of graduates from Essex and Thames Primary SCITT gain jobs as teachers and our school is currently actively involved in the training of new teachers.

The SCITT has been working with Essex primary schools for nearly 20 years and has a highly experienced team to support you throughout the year. The training is predominantly school-based with 120 days spent in the classroom in a local school, and 70+ days in centre-based training in Wickford or Southend (whichever is nearest to you). These centre based lectures start at 9.30am. The course not only gives you extensive practical classroom experience but a detailed knowledge of both the National Curriculum and of educational pedagogy. The programme opens at the end of August with an Induction and a PE coaching course, and finishes in July.

With a truly excellent reputation for teacher training, our SCITT partner offers you a variety of routes into teaching in Essex.
