Do you want to begin a rewarding career in teaching?

Passionate about your subject of expertise and want to make a positive difference in the lives of young people?


Helena Romanes School works with both Essex School Direct and MidEssex ITT to offer placements across curriculum subjects. Both Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers are known for their high quality training and commitment to ensuring trainees are supported throughout their training year and beyond. During the year trainees are taught the theory behind teaching which is then put into practice in their placement schools on a daily basis. Being providers which get trainees into schools from Day 1 means that they are well prepared for the demands of school life early on and build those important relationships with mentors and other colleagues.


Secondary School ITT Providers 


Mid Essex ITT has been training secondary school teachers for 25 years. We offer both fee-paying and salaried teacher training courses in sixteen different subjects. We are based at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form with our trainees placed in secondary schools all over Essex.

Essex School Direct (with the Tes Institute)    

Essex School Direct has a long tradition of successful teacher training and were centrally involved in the ‘pilot’ year 2012-13 when the Government launched the programme.

  • We provide a very special, school-based training experience in partnership with Tes Institute, who have a reputation for innovative on-line learning materials, especially in shortage subjects, with its Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses

  • In recent years, we've had class leading results - our completion rate is an average of 97%, which is well above average for Initial Teacher Training programmes. From our current cohort, 89% found teaching jobs before the end of the course, and 74% of these were in our partnership schools, which shows the strength of our teacher training network
