Working in partnership with over 20 Partner Schools
Based at Davenant Foundation School (Loughton, Essex), we work as a partnership with over 20 other schools in West Essex, Harlow, Chelmsford and Havering to provide both primary and secondary initial teacher training.
We work in partnership with TES Institute
We provide a very special, school based training experience in partnership with Tes Institute, who have a reputation for innovative on-line learning materials, especially in shortage subjects, with its Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses.
Committed To Working Together
All our partnership schools are committed to working together through the School Direct programme with our provider Tes Institute to offer the very best of school-based teacher training programmes.
Our in-person programme will seek to maximise time spent in the classroom by ensuring that the our Face-2-Face workshop programme is of the highest quality and delivered within our locality by highly qualified teachers who know our schools and our learners. (No distant lecturers who haven’t taught regularly in schools for years.)
