Career. Development. Opportunity.
Education is simply unrivalled as a force for good in the social, emotional, cultural and economic health of a nation. Both a vocation and a profession, teaching has the power to create change; to motivate, inspire and above all - to make a difference. Our role as a Trust is to recruit, train and retain the very best talents to achieve more than they ever believed possible. And to give them amazing opportunities for career development and progression in some of the most positive schools in the land. We look forward to hearing from you.
We empower our colleagues and ensure they have all they need to succeed...
We know that great education is only possible with great teachers. We support our colleagues every step of the way to empower them to deliver high-quality education and care.
We empower all our colleagues to develop their careers with us according to their aspirations through our tailored CPD programme. From our early career teachers to our support staff and our leaders, we ensure each colleague’s pathway to progression and continuous improvement is clear with a variety of training programmes available to stretch, challenge and inspire. We also have established networks throughout the Trust where like-minded colleagues can share experiences and inform best practice.
