Our Vacancies & Guidance for Applicants

How do I Apply?

Applications for all roles can be made via our online portal below.

I’m currently working in a local authority school. Why would I want to work for a Trust?

Moving to an academy/academy trust has a number of advantages. The main one is that you get to work in a collaborative environment with other academies, all of which have considerable autonomy. As a member of staff, you also benefit from greater opportunities for professional development and promotion, as we encourage movement between our academies to give you
broader work experience.

I’ve been offered a job but I would like to know how long pre-employment checks take so I know when to resign from my current post?

Pre-employment checks include references, enhanced DBS and a health check. It is important that we have the correct reference details on your application form so that these can be applied for straight away. The checks can take up to 6 weeks, but on average take 4 weeks. We remain in contact with prospective new starters throughout the process and can work with you in line with your current employer’s notice period requirement to prevent any delays.

UK Right to Work / Sponsorship Information

We have a legal responsibility to ensure that all our employees have the legal right to live and work in the UK. If we make an offer of employment, we will need to check that you are eligible to work in the UK before you start work.

I’m a UK national but my last job was abroad, do I need to provide anything additional as part of my application as proof? 

Yes, Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 guidance states we must obtain criminal records checks for overseas applicants or those that have worked abroad, from the country they worked/lived in. Teachers should obtain a letter from the professional regulating authority (this is often the Department/Ministry of Education but varies across the world) in the country (or countries) in which the applicant has worked confirming that they have not imposed any sanctions or restrictions, and or that they are aware of any reason why they may be unsuitable to teach. 

I would like to visit a school before I apply to see whether it would be the right fit, is this possible?

Yes, school visits are encouraged before applying, please use the information provided within each vacancy to arrange a visit if you wish to do so.
