Our blended approach to the course offers you, the apprentice, the responsibility of class teaching, maximised school experience, learning from expert colleagues, online leaning through the TES platform as well as face to face sessions with other apprentices. The course is bespoke to your learning needs and factors in your previous experience at the school in which you are training.
You will receive support and advice on how to plan, teach and assess learning and work closely with your school based mentor. Advice and support is offered when completing the required assignments to empower you to reflect effectively on teaching. During your course, we will organise visits to different types of schools and specialist context to give you a round educational experience.
We assess your progress throughout the course to build up an overall picture of your strengths and areas to develop. Evidence is gathered on TES learn, which avoids unnecessary workload on trainees.
Apprentices spend the majority of their first year in the school that is employing them. A second placement will take place January for 6 weeks. This placement will be a contrasting context approach.
The online learning is bespoke to your learning needs and factors in your previous experience in school.

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.
