CCHSG has recently been designated as the Lead School in the Colchester Teacher Training Consortium (CTTC) which comprises 14 secondary and 40 primary schools.

The Consortium offers Primary and Secondary School Direct Programmes, leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), including credits at Masters level validated by the University of Greenwich.   The consortium trains over 50 student teachers every year. The programme is based in and run by schools with the aim of providing an effective training environment, where trainees can learn from best practice.  The wide variety of schools involved means that trainees can experience a range of diverse and exciting experiences and opportunities.  A very high proportion of trainees gain employment in the partner schools each year.

  “The CTTC is an outstanding organisation with a supportive team. My year of training has been enjoyable. I have learnt a lot and I feel very confident”.
