A Message from Gill Halls, Associate Director People and Talent

When accepting new trainee teachers on to our programme, we look for those people who embrace the values and vision of our Trust. They are enthusiastic adults who are totally student centred, love their subject and believe passionately in the role that excellent teaching plays in inspiring and motivating learners. They understand that education is the key lever for social mobility, that every student has potential and talent and they are keen to learn how to ‘unlock’ these through their teaching. They will recognise the wider roles schools, and teachers, play in providing remarkable learning environments, where genuine enjoyment of leaning takes place within vibrant communities with a wealth of exciting extra curricular opportunities.

We absolutely love working with trainees in all of our Trust schools. Our mentors and coaches develop their own practice by sharing expertise with trainees and acting as a learning partner in guiding them through their training journey.

With an excellent record of trainee success and recruitment to teaching post in our Trust, we welcome any prospective trainees to spend time with us in our schools and to see for themselves just how rewarding teaching is.
