A well-established route into a successful teaching career

School-based teacher training

Our training programmes

Our aim is simply to make you the best teacher you can be. The success of our schools depends wholly upon developing the strongest possible staff. This is why Havering schools have established a programme to provide the highest quality entrants to the profession.

You will be placed in a partner secondary school (or for the School Direct salaried route, employed) but will also benefit from half a term's experience in a contrasting school. At all times school and Partnership staff will monitor your progress and be available to support your development. From the beginning you will be treated like a member of staff and will attend staff meetings and training days. You will be in school from the first day of the school year to the last so you will feel part of the team from the outset.

We take great care to ensure all trainees are valued members of our cohort. A senior member of HTTP staff works closely alongside each trainee and small tutorial groups ensure personal attention. Training sessions are held weekly which guarantees regular contact. We recognise the degree of challenge in starting out in teaching and understand the vital importance of individual support. Subject specific training is enhanced by the work of our highly skilled team of Subject Leaders.
