Why Join Our Team?

We are a MAT with a difference. Rather than Subsidiaries of a larger entity, our academies are Communities within a Community. Each represents a unique ‘hub’ of excellence where the decisions about student learning are taken close to them by leaders empowered and supported to achieve their objectives.

The PET does not ‘have’ schools and Colleges, schools and colleges are part of the PET learning community, and working for us is your opportunity to join that community.

We are looking for talented individuals who want to be part of a Trust whose core focus is the development of teaching and learning for all members of the community. We have created a learning community for staff and students, learning from each other and the best in national practice. Supporting, challenging, developing and learning from our colleagues is central to the way in which we lead and work with our colleagues.

More than 300 people across the Trust work hard to provide the very best education and services within all of our academies, from invigilators joining us for a few hours a year, flexible part-time workers, to many full-time teaching and support staff.

If you share our commitment to education and the aspirations of young people, we want to hear from you.

Benefits for Staff

Starting with a robust and supportive induction, peer support and a comprehensive programme of professional development, we pride ourselves on the achievements of our colleagues as professional members of our community.

We are committed to offering flexible employment opportunities enabling staff to strike a sensible balance between home and work life. Wherever possible, we are open to discussing a range of flexible working options including reduced/compressed hours; remote working; flexible start and finish times.

You will enjoy great benefits wherever your place in the Trust

  • Pension Schemes;
  • Flexible Working Policies;
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave;
  • Computing Scheme;

As our trust grows and flourishes, the benefits we can bring to staff continue to develop, and each academy is able to offer a range of practical benefits including parking, access to fitness facilities and other wellbeing support.
