All 14 trainees who took part in a teacher qualification programme were able to celebrate their graduation at a special ceremony in Upminster.
Engayne Primary School in Severn Drive, hosted the graduation ceremony on Friday, June 29 for 14 trainee teachers who passed the Havering Train2Teach one-year programme in partnership with the TES Institute.
Hornchurch and Upminster MP, Julia Lopez, and Steve Pinches, global director of TES, presented each graduate with a certificate at the event.
Mrs Lopez said: “The intensive support that trainees receive, in a school-led teacher training programme, is a huge factor contributing towards the 100per cent pass rate, which exceeds the national average compared to non-school led programmes.
“Programmes like this are great for Havering, as they draw on the tremendous experience that our teachers have to offer and help people to become teachers in the borough.”
Trainees benefit from a mix of in-school experience, online learning, tutor support and mentor support in schools around Havering.
Jill Mackintosh, Havering Train2Teach programme director and assistant head at Engayne Primary School added: “I would like to thank our hugely talented pool of primary school teachers, from across the borough, who act as mentors and help our students achieve such great results.”
