Education, Training and Development
Across the Trust, we are dedicated to offering meaningful CPD to all employees. We have many years of teaching skills and expertise across our employees who can mentor and train those looking to improve their skillsets and access future employment opportunities. Collaboration across our schools means we share best practice and support is there from like minded colleagues.
We encourage current employees to undertake apprenticeships to enhance and improve their skills and opportunities. We also work with local colleges to offer apprenticeships to those moving onto the next stage of their education.
Access to Wellbeing Support
The health and wellbeing of our employees is paramount, and we offer a free telephone counselling service through our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), delivered by Health Assured – the UK and Ireland’s leading wellbeing provider.
