We work with the full range of schools in the Havering area. 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. 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.
