About the course
Our teacher training programme is run over a one-year period within schools in partnership with the TES Institute. The one year course is delivered with a mix of in-school experience, online learning, tutor support and in-school mentor support. If you opt for the part-time course you will spend 3 days per week in school and one day per week for online study. The course will be spread over four terms and two academic years (starting September of year one and finishing December of year two).
Why chose our TES institute course?
The TES institute programme is a unique opportunity to work as a member of a school team and learn about teaching from dedicated, experienced professionals in schools. Your practical teacher training will be supplemented by high quality online learning sessions written by practising teachers and academics from the world of education.
TES Institute’s School Direct ITT programme will allow you to:
Work in a school alongside teaching professionals, learning from experienced practitioners as part of a team
Train to prepare and deliver your own lessons and in time, take shared responsibility for your own classes
Gain contrasting experience in a second partnership school
Access supporting online study sessions 24/7 that focus on the theory and practice of teaching and learning
Benefit from the support of an in-school mentor and a TES Institute pathway tutor to guide and facilitate effective progress towards QTS

Once your application is received on UCAS and references received, we will contact you to invite you to a selection/interview morning or afternoon. This will consist of a mixture of a 5 minute presentation (the topic of which will be given to you prior to the day) followed by an interview, some time in the classroom and a 30 minute written test.
How school placements work
If selected, a primary school (your home school) within Havering will be chosen based on your skill set and preferences you give at the interview stage. During term 2, you will have a second placement at a different primary school in the opposite key stage to which you have chosen. This ensures that by the end of the course you are confident and capable of teaching all ranges within a primary school setting. You also have a one day placement at a special needs school and a two day placement at a secondary school, again all within Havering.

Training with disabilities and other needs
Havering Train2Teach recognises, celebrates and plans for diversity and equality. Our partnership schools are ones in which well-being and the principles of inclusion matter. All schools in the partnership are dedicated to achieving equality of opportunity where access hinges not on treating trainees in the same way, but on taking positive action to redress the inequalities faced by some trainees.
Havering Train2Teach schools are located across the borough in a variety of buildings, all with different facilities allowing for a suitable placement for trainees with disabilities to be found. We have been able to accommodate trainees with mobility issues who have needed to be located on a ground floor or who have had trouble standing for long periods of time. Practical adjustments to physical environments are part of each school’s accessibility plan and will be considered in individual cases.
By working closely with TES, reasonable variations can be made to allow access to the training plan and the delivery of information. Each new trainee has an initial need assessment (INA) which leads to a more individualised program for all.
