This full or part time course which includes KS5 leads to PGCE (60 Masters credits) and QTS. 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.
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.
Applicants require a GCSE grade 4/C or appropriate equivalence in English and Maths. A degree is also required. It is expected that an applicant’s degree will be related to the subject they wish to teach, although often we can train with a good A level and a SKE course. Please ask.
Fees and financial support
The course fees for UK students in 2021 to 2022 are £8,900.
About the training provider
NETT are a small supportive ITT provider with excellent outcomes and an outstanding employment record. We offer a Postgraduate Certificate in Education, from the University of Suffolk, with QTS. The PGCE carries 60 Master’s credits. We offer courses at both primary and secondary level (11-16 years with post 16 enhancement).
Our full time course runs from September to June / July. All trainees have experience in two mainstream schools, covering at least two key stages. There is also the opportunity to train in a Special school and a 6th form college. Most schools are located in the North Essex area.
The interviews will involve a presentation, interview, subject based written task and numeracy task and completion of a subject audit.
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.
