Are you looking for a truly meaningful career, where you can make a difference in the lives of young people?

We support trainees through our School Direct programme to get experience of teaching from their very first day and promote outstanding career development through our CPD pathway, which supports colleagues at every step of their journey from NQT to Executive Principal.

As a Trust, we offer a variety of roles within our central team to support the impact of our colleagues in schools and we empower all of our staff to achieve their potential for the benefit of our pupils.

“I have been incredibly impressed, since joining the MAT the personal training opportunities that are accessible are the best I have seen.”

Professional Development

Pupil Support Pathway

We encourage all staff to develop in their own journeys, both as a learner and a colleague. Our professional development pathways set out how staff can progress from their starting points within the Trust, to their desired level of expertise.

Our pupil support pathway outlines how Teaching Assistants can develop from Level 1 through to HLTA, guiding them through the core elements of each step, as well as enhanced development opportunities within each stage.

Teacher to Leader Pathway

Our staff are ambitious for themselves and their pupils and they understand the importance of prioritising their own learning journeys.

We use our teacher to leadership pathway as a guide for all staff who are looking to enhance their impact in school, as an experienced and then a specialist practitioner. Guidance is provided by expert staff at every level, to encourage progress and foster talent.

System Leader Pathway_

Our system leadership pathway highlights the routes for all staff across the trust to become a leader within their school and to move beyond this learning environment to lead departments within the trust.

Our career progression model is transparent and equitable; as such, it highlights how members of staff within any department can move through their career journey to become the leader of the whole trust, as CEO.


“I have found the Trust’s training package outstanding; attendance at the international conference is an amazing opportunity for staff.”
