Meet the Reps!

Monday, 27 September 2021.

Each year we at Mid Essex ITT host a Quality Assurance Committee where representatives from across the programme meet to share the views of the cohort and look at the provision that we offer.

We at MEITT would like to say a huge welcome back to the start of a new academic year to all our professional colleagues. If you're anything like us, the past few weeks will have flown by far too quickly! But hopefully you will be feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready for the challenges ahead.

The Danny Audritt Award 2021

Monday, 19 July 2021.

Every year, an MEITT trainee  is chosen to receive the Danny Audritt Award.

Danny was a teacher who trained with Mid Essex ITT in 2016-2017. He went through heart surgery during his first term of training and sadly passed away in February 2018, the year after qualifying.

Oh Baby!

Tuesday, 14 September 2021.

Some might say that the teacher training year can be tough. Tough but extremely rewarding of course!

But we never forget that each individual trainee will have a busy and eventful world of their own away from the training year.

Youth Mental Health Day

Monday, 06 September 2021.

Today is #YouthMentalHealthDay.

After the events of the past 18 months and more, it is hardly surprising that mental health is affecting more and more young people than ever before. But even before the COVID-19 crisis, one in six young people aged 5-16-year olds reported suffering from a mental disorder.

My experience as a trainee teacher

Friday, 10 September 2021.

Just what is it like to be a trainee teacher? If you have found yourself looking at our website, you might find yourself asking this very question!  One of our fabulous trainees from last year has taken time out to write about her experiences. Read on!

International Literacy Day

Monday, 06 September 2021.

Happy #InternationalLiteracyDay!

International Literacy Day (ILD) takes place on September 8 every year to raise awareness and concern for literacy problems that exist within our own local communities as well as globally.


Keeping it in the family

Thursday, 24 June 2021.

We were thrilled recently to discover that two of our trainees are related, and are actually Aunt and Niece! We asked Lynn Higgins-Watson and Amelia (Millie) Johns to give us the downlow on training to teach alongside a close member of your family.
