About our schools

We pride ourselves on being the preferred teacher training provider for a large number of Essex primary schools.

We do our very best to match you with a school as near to where you live as possible and we take into account those PGCE students with additional considerations, e.g. those who have childcare commitments or who use public transport etc. and ensure we place them sympathetically. 

Training in schools

Essex and Thames Primary SCITT is comprised of over 125 schools in Essex including many outstanding and special schools. All schools used for training are selected on the basis of their excellent reputations and experience in working with trainees.

In addition to individual schools, we currently work with a large and growing number of teaching school alliances, multi academy trusts and teaching schools. Our trainee teachers benefit from their expertise and proactive commitment to training the very best teachers for the future.
