School Experience

Billericay School is registered with the DFE School Experience Programme. This offers graduates, considering a career in teaching, the opportunity to spend up to 10 days gaining an insight into all aspects of secondary school life, including observing a variety of lessons in the subject(s) of choice. This programme will enhance applications for teacher training made through UCAS for the School Direct route into qualified teacher status (QTS).

For a successful NQT, an Early Start scheme from 2 July 2020 is available. This includes a daily rate for all days worked throughout July (e.g. £130 per day M1) followed by payments across the summer holidays and a well-established induction package.

Since 2010 the school has taken 29 teachers through induction and we have 5 going through during the current year (2019/20). Of these 29, there are still 23 involved in school based education which is a retention rate significantly above the national average. In fact 15 of the 29 are still employed at the Billericay School and a number of these staff now hold positions of responsibility including a Head of House, Heads of Department and Key Stage Co-ordinators.  The Billericay school provides an environment where teachers can develop their craft and find opportunities for promotion.
