About the course

This full or part time course which includes KS5 leads to PGCE (60 Masters credits) and QTS. There is an option to opt out of PGCE and take QTS route only. The course runs in Colchester and the surrounding area. Trainees have a mentor throughout the course and are very well supported in a long established training programme.

School placements

There are two school placements throughout the year to enable trainees to access a range of schools and courses. Visits to special schools and primary schools are also included. Longer placements in special schools may be possible. NETT arranges placements in most cases although applicants can also do this.

Interview process

The interviews will involve a presentation, interview, subject based written task and numeracy task and completion of a subject audit.

International students

We cannot sponsor visas. You’ll need to get the right visa or status to study in the UK.

You do not need a visa if you already have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, or if you’re an Irish citizen.

Candidates with qualifications from non-UK institutions may need to provide evidence of comparability by applying for a UK ENIC statement.

Training with disabilities and other needs

We can train candidates with varying needs. In the last year we have successfully trained people with dyslexia and mental health conditions. We have provided extra support and personalised their learning to ensure that they become confident teachers.
