Essex PGCE teacher training centred in schools
During your training year you will undertake placements in at least two different schools and we do our best to accommodate all age phase requests so if you haven’t decided which age range you wish to work in, don’t worry. We will ensure that your teaching practices enable you to apply for any primary school teaching job upon graduation.
Although the majority of your training takes place within the schools direct, in the classroom, you will also attend a wide range of lectures to ensure that you are able to draw on a sound theoretical understanding of teaching and learning and are familiar with up to date educational theory, current trends in education and relevant and useful teaching skills.
Additionally, you will be given the chance to enhance your skill and knowledge base in specialist areas including: Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Maths Leadership, Leadership, PE and EYFS. All our trainees gain additional sports coaching qualifications.
