The West Essex School Direct Partnership is committed to attracting, training and developing graduates to enable all schools within our area to reach the same level of excellence and quality of provision thus ensuring that all our trainees achieve their full potential.
In order to realise this vision our partnership schools have made a commitment to work together through the School Direct programme with our provider TES Institute to provide the very best school-based teacher training programmes in the Secondary sector. The programme will seek to maximise time spent in the classroom by ensuring that the face-to-face professional studies programme is of the highest quality and delivered within our locality.
“I have found the Schools Direct course to be a very valuable route into my teaching career. Experiencing school life from September through to June on the Schools Direct training course has giving me an insight into the teaching profession that I would not have experienced had I choose the university route. As I now prepare for my NQT year in my new school I feel confidently equipped to embrace the challenges of teaching ahead.”
