Every year we support the training of ten or more trainee teachers. Many of these colleagues have trained through Mid Essex Initial Teacher Training, the School Centred Initial Teacher Training provider for whom we are the lead school. However, we also work with a range of other providers, and have a strong track record of training outstanding trainee teachers. We do our very best to help candidates with strong potential find suitable providers and placements. As Lead School for Mid Essex ITT a number of our staff are seconded to the scheme for part of their week, fulfilling roles such as Programme Manager, Course Tutors, Lead Subject Mentors and Mentors, affording them with the opportunity to contribute to Initial Teacher Education across the 12 schools of the Mid Essex ITT Consortium.
We regularly offer observation days and teacher shadowing opportunities to prospective trainee teachers. If you would like to arrange such an opportunity and you meet the minimum requirements to train as a teacher, please contact Martin Higgon – firstname.lastname@example.org. Potential trainees in certain subjects can visit us through the School Experience Programme.
