Thinking of becoming a teacher? Why not train with us, the top performing provider in England.
We are based at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford. We operate as an independent provider of initial teacher training.
Why not have the best of both worlds, a school led course with all the facilities a University can offer including an extensive library, online journals, NUS membership and a bookshop.
“Trainees develop excellent relationships with their tutors, mentors and fellow trainees. There is a real active buzz to lectures and debates are in depth and purposeful.” - Ofsted 2010
We also offer:
- A Post Graduate Certificate in Education (60 Master credits)
- Enhanced training programme in either English, Mathematics, Science or Special Eductional Needs and Disabilities
Teaching is a challenging and highly rewarding career. Working with children to develop their personal, social and intellectual capacities brings great personal satisfaction.
Becoming a successful teacher is a process which requires support and training of the highest quality. Initial teacher training is the important first step in the process. We are considered to be an intimate provider. Billericay Educational Consortium staff members are very accessible and trainees feel well supported and listened to. We are renowned for producing sound, experienced and reflective Newly Qualified Teachers who are sought after by schools.
The centre-based training elements are delivered by practising teachers who are able to share with trainees the very real demands, challenges and joys of primary teaching today. Many sessions are delivered in school and pupils contribute to the training.
We take 57 trainees a year and successful candidates are offered a place within five days of being interviewed. You have to ask the question:
