Welcome

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 and, after successfully completing the course, you will be awarded QTS and a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (ProfGCE).

We have over 20 years of experience of teacher training 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 secondary schools around Essex.  We work closely with a number of schools in Chelmsford (Chelmer Valley High School, Hylands School, Moulsham High School and The Sandon School), Brentwood (Brentwood County High School and Shenfield High School), Billericay (The Billericay School and Mayflower High School) as well as schools in Braintree (Alec Hunter Academy), Dunmow (Helena Romanes School), Hockley (Greensward Academy), Halstead (The Ramsey Academy) and Thundersley (The Deanes School). 

For our September 2017 intake, we have space for up to 60 trainee teachers, across 16 different subjects. Would you like to be one of them?

  • Next Interview Day: Friday 16th June

    We will be holding our next day of interviews on Friday 16th June.  We often get asked when the deadline is to apply.... although it is possible to apply over the summer, we like as many people to have confirmed their place with us by the end of June.  Our induction training will take place on Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July and we like all trainees to attend this so they are ready for September!

  • Taster Day: FULL!

    ...but watch this space for news of more Taster Days.  Alternatively, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to put your name on the list for the next one!
