We have an excellent reputation locally and are proud to say that we are the provider of choice for our locality. Our trainees are among the first to gain employment each year. often within partner schools.

We are delighted to be working with Essex and Thames SCITT who are one of the largest school-based primary teacher training providers in our region. This means that you can become part of our extended ‘SCITT family’ along with hundreds of others who have gone before you!

A partnership which ‘is gaining a well-deserved reputation for training high-quality NQTs that local schools are keen to employ,’ and whose ‘pursuit of excellence is central to partnership activities.’ (Ofsted 2016)

We train teachers who are passionate, confident and secure in the knowledge that they can make the best decisions for the children and young people in their care – in short excellent teachers!   We aim to create a nurturing and supportive environment in which you can train to become the kind of teacher who changes lives. Children and young people are at the centre of everything that we do and our graduates are making a significant positive contribution to their education in our schools.

We believe in training aspiring teachers from any background to become outstanding teachers that will have a positive impact on pupils and schools throughout their careers.

We aim to foster the development of professional skills, knowledge and attitudes needed by teachers in order to engage, stimulate and promote students’ learning. We believe that a spirit of intellectual enquiry should match the practical competence of teachers, focusing on how to stimulate and support effective and worthwhile learning of all students. A balance of these attributes is essential for proficiency in the classroom.
