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.
