Welcome to Mid Essex Initial Teacher Training

Mid Essex is a school-based Initial Teacher Training scheme. This means that you will undertake most of your training within a local Essex school environment. We will train you to teach at secondary school level.

We have over 20 years of experience and over 500 teachers have trained with us. We are unique in that all our training is run by experienced, practising teachers. We are based at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form and have links with over 20 schools around Essex.

For our September 2016 intake, we have space for up to 87 trainee teachers, across 16 different subjects. Would you like to be one of them?

  • Goodbye to our Maths Interns

    Congratulations to our nine Maths Interns who have completed their six week internships today!  The interns were placed in nine secondary schools across Essex.

  • Congratulations!

    Mid Essex ITT welcomed over 200 guests to the Braintree Arts Theatre on Monday night to award our trainees with Qualified Teacher Status. 

  • Applications, Interviews and Induction Training

    If you are interested in training with us in 2016-2017, please submit your application form through UCAS as soon as possible.  Our induction training for our new cohort starts on Tuesday 12th July, and we are still looking for some more trainees to join us!  We will next be interviewing on Thursday 30th June.

  • Which subject will you choose?

    Are you interested in training as a secondary school teacher in Essex? It's not too late to apply to start in September.  We still have vacancies in 14 different subjects:

  • School Visits

    As part of the training year, our trainees visit a primary school, a school in challenging circumstances and a special school.  The visits give the trainees an insight into a setting which is very different to their current placement school.
