ITT Courses - September 2017

The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance has an excellent reputation for Teacher Training.  We work in partnership with local schools and TES Institute (formerly Hibernia College UK).  The following Teacher Training opportunities are available starting from September 2017 through the School Direct route. 

Whilst specific training places have been loosely attached to certain schools, there is flexibility in this depending on the association that individual candidates have with particular schools. Candidates are therefore required to be flexible about their placements but we would encourage you to state your preference when submitting your application. We always ensure that all training will be of the highest quality, regardless of the host school.
