On successful completion of the programme, the Teach Thurrock Primary Partnership supports each candidate in gaining a teaching post in either one of the partnership schools or in Thurrock.  Candidates may be able to take up their post from July 2016 through early start programmes in individual schools but this is negotiable.

Salaried Trainees do not pay course fees as their training is funded by the Government.  Each school receives funding towards the training and salary of their trainee.  Salaried trainees are paid on the first point of the unsalaried teachers’ pay scale.
