We offer both full--time and part-time options.

We have 25 years' experience of teacher training and more than 750 teachers have trained with us during that time. We are unique in that all our training is run by experienced, practising teachers. We are based at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form and have links with more than 20 secondary schools around Essex
