Are you thinking about a career in teaching?

College is a partner in a Teaching School Alliance of 24 secondary schools across Colchester and Tendring, including special, grammar and primary schools, called the North East Essex Teaching School Alliance (NEETSA).

Routes into teaching changed in 2013/14 and post-graduate applicants can now apply for Schools Direct training places in the primary and secondary sectors.

See details of the training routes available at the Department for Education.

Applicants for 2014/15 need to apply through UCAS this year and applications open November 21st 2013. Follow the link: www.ucas.com/teacher-training.

Further details can be found on the NEETSA website and websites of the two Teacher Training providers who will be coordinating recruitment and providing training within the schools: Colchester Teacher Training Consortium and North Essex Teacher Training. Please note that none of the placements are held in this College, however most will visit for a sixth form experience as part of their training.
