Why work for us?
First Federation Trust is a forward-thinking and collaborative organisation and is ambitious for its staff. We recognise that our trust as a whole, is greater than the sum of our individual parts and so support staff across the organisation to improve and grow.
We are committed to ensuring that ‘every individual will aspire, flourish and achieve within the heart of their community’. We take pride in not only helping the children in our schools toward this goal but our employees too; expanding on their skills and knowledge and offering them the opportunity to progress.
From the provision of our School Direct programme, where trainees get to experience teaching from their very first day, to promoting outstanding career development through our professional development pathways, we support our colleagues at every step of their career.
How you progress is up to you. You may wish to work your way into leadership, or you may prefer to enhance and broaden your skills instead. As a trust with a diverse family of schools, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to experience different school environments and progress into other specialist areas of the trust. We will work with you to understand your career goals and provide effective coaching as part of your performance management and development plan.
