BEC Teacher Training to join NESTT

BEC Teacher Training is looking forward to embarking on an exciting new venture.

After nearly 30 years of training teachers in Essex, we are excited to announce the next step in our development. We are merging with Suffolk and Norfolk Scitt to form Norfolk, Essex and Suffolk Teacher Training (NESTT). We’ll still be delivering the same local, high quality, personalised training we’re known for from our Essex training base. Alongside that, the new organisation will give us scope to develop an even wider range of courses to suit our trainees and our schools.

We’re recruiting for NESTT courses for 2024 from October. Why not get in touch to find out more?
