Welcome

Thinking of becoming a teacher? Why not train with us, the top performing provider in England, based in Essex.

Billericay Educational Consortium offers a wealth of experience in training truly outstanding reflective practitioners.   We presently have access to the facilities offered by The Institute of Education and offer a PGCE qualification at Masters level to those School Direct Fee Paying trainees.  We operate as a provider of initial teacher training and enjoy wide access to training methodology across all of our secondary partnership schools.

Why not have the best of both worlds, a school led programme with all the facilities the Institute can offer including an extensive library and online journals

“The level of coherence between the taught aspects of the course and school placements is excellent.  This means all trainees are well supported to make rapid progress in becoming good and outstanding teachers.” – Ofsted 2014

Teaching is a challenging and highly rewarding career. Working with trainees to develop their personal, social and intellectual capacities brings great personal satisfaction.

Becoming a successful teacher is a process which requires support and training of the highest quality. Initial teacher training is the important first step in the process. We are considered to be an intimate provider. Billericay Educational Consortium staff members are very accessible and trainees feel well supported and listened to. We are renowned for producing sound, experienced and reflective Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) who are sought after by schools both within and beyond the partnership.

Teaching Expertise:

The face to face training elements are delivered by high quality practising teachers  who are able to share with trainees the very real demands and challenges  of secondary teaching today. Many sessions are delivered in school and trainees contribute to the training.
