ITT Courses

The Benfleet Teaching School Alliance has an excellent reputation for Teacher Training. We work in partnership with local schools and the TES Institute. The following Teacher Training opportunities will be available starting in September 2020 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.

Key Stage 3/4

Fee funded training places are available for the following subjects: 

Art & Design
Design & Technology
Modern Foreign Languages
