About Essex & Thames Education

Essex & Thames Education’s excellent training is supported by a large partnership of more than 100 nurseries, primary and special schools and our PGCE is accredited by Anglia Ruskin University. Due to the outstanding reputation we hold locally for the provision of effective training; our trainees are among the first to gain employment each year, usually within partner schools.

Essex and Thames Education is more than just a school-based primary teacher training provider; we pride ourselves on offering excellent support for new teachers and those looking to change careers. Joining our “Education Family,” ensures you’ll be provided with excellent support throughout your training and beyond.

Our Vision

Children and young people are at the centre of everything we do, and our graduates significantly contribute to their education in our schools. We are a charity that trains teachers to be passionate, confident and secure in the knowledge that they can make the best decisions for the children in their care – in short, excellent teachers! We provide a nurturing and supportive environment where you can train to become the kind of teacher who changes lives.
