"Daring to aim high, scale new heights, spread our wings and fly far"
Interested in becoming a primary teacher?
Why not train with us?
Boreham Primary is working in partnership with the Chelmsford Teaching Schools Alliance and Essex Primary SCITT to offer high quality training for graduates wishing to teach in primary schools through its one-year full time School Direct route leading to Qualified Teacher Status.
We work successfully with partnership schools across Essex with the aim to produce confident, highly skilled, enthusiastic and innovative practitioners able to teach across the primary age range to meet the needs of our local context.
Our Training Programme
Training covers the effective teaching of all of the National Curriculum subjects, the wider curriculum and other current educational issues as well as developing trainees’ computing skills. Trainees attend a pre-course induction day with their host school mentor in July and a second induction day prior to taking up their main placement and we encourage trainees to spend time in their host school prior to starting the course if possible. The course is structured so that trainees gain hands on experience in their host schools from the very beginning. Trainees spend approximately two or three days a week in school and two days a week on our taught course for the first two terms. During this time there are also opportunities to visit other partnership schools to further develop practice. In the final term there are two block teaching practices, one in a second placement school and a final assessed teaching practice back in the main placement school. Trainees are allocated to one of our three cohorts with our cohort based at Moulsham Infant School in Chelmsford. Some training days are also held in other partnership schools.
Each trainee is assigned a mentor in each school and an external mentor who support and guide them through their professional development. Throughout the year trainees complete directed tasks and assignments which build up a range of evidence against the Teachers’ Standards for their Professional Portfolio which is a core requirement for the successful completion of the course.
What our trainees say about the course...
"I can't rate the course more highly. The way the course is structured allows you to get to know what life is like in a school whilst gradually building up your teaching experience. You are utterly supported along the way by the tutors and mentors who are out to give you the very best start in your career as a teacher. Certainly, for me this was the best pathway to take to QTS."
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. Although it has, as expected, been challenging in many ways, I have learnt so much and progressed enormously. I now feel fully prepared to take on my own class."
"I feel that this is a fantastic way to train as a teacher, as the trainee is part of the school team from day one."
"Have had a fantastic year! Have learnt and developed so much and cannot wait to begin teaching in September."
