Every year, we employ a great number of ECTs (formerly NQTs) across Leigh Academies Trust within our primary, secondary and SEN academies. Every single ECT who joins us receives the support, collaborative opportunities and the best start to a career in teaching that you should need. Register your details with us today and begin your journey! We can offer advice for all current PGCE/School Direct Teachers and can arrange phone calls or face to face meetings at times convenient to you to support you in selecting where you'd like to teach from September 2022.
All we require at this stage is for you to fill in a few details and upload an up-to-date copy of your CV so that we can get a full understanding of your experience, your teacher training programme and your other relevant qualifications. Our Talent Team will then make contact with you within 48 hours of registering your details to discuss what we have to offer, current opportunities across our academies or those that may be available in due course.
Let us take this opportunity to highlight the key benefit of working for our Trust is the opportunity to build strong working relationships with your colleagues; whether this is within your specific academy or those in the local area. Collaboration is encouraged across all specialisms, positions, key stages and schools. Our ECTs meet regularly to share best practice, receive training and guidance from senior and experienced staff members, and also from external organisations such as Thames Gateway Teaching School Hub, Unions, and industry experts to name a few.
We offer the following benefits to our ECTs:
- Where possible, we may be able to offer you the opportunity to start in July, giving you the chance to settle into your new role and classroom prior to September, allowing you to fully relax over the summer break knowing everything is in hand!
- Continuing training and mentoring from a subject specialist throughout your ECT induction years so you feel fully supported in all aspects of teaching.
- The opportunity to progress within our Trust at your own pace with the full support of our academies – we successfully identify talent and will work with you to achieve your goals.
Furthermore, if you refer your friends, peers and colleagues to us and they are successful in securing a position at any one of our schools, we can offer you £300 as a thank you.
