Why work for the Greenwood Academies Trust?


About the Trust
  • Making a difference. If you really want to make a difference to the life chances of pupils then why not join an organisation that enables you to do just that?
  • GAT is a well established multi academy trust and has a track record of working to help raise standards in areas of social and economic deprivation and / or educational underachievement.
  • A supportive leadership and central team.  GAT is led by educationalists who have significant experience in a wide range of schools with expertise in areas such as curriculum, SEND, staffing and finance. The central team provides a wide range of high quality services to academies, enabling them to focus on teaching. 
  • The GAT is a not-for-profit educational charity 
    We always prioritise our resources to achieve outstanding educational outcomes for our pupils.
  • A close knit support network.  With academies across the East Midlands the chance of sharing best practice and collaborative working is second to none.
Employee Benefits
  • We offer extensive development opportunities. We are keen to promote from within, so if you are looking for a career with real potential for progression, then GAT is the place for you.

  • We ensure our staff wellbeing. All staff have access to a 24/7 confidential Employee Assistance Programme to help employees manage stress, access specialist counselling and information and feel supported.
  • We support working parents. Every employee is eligible for childcare vouchers for registered childcare providers, to offset some of the costs of being a working parent. The cost of the vouchers is taken out of your wages before tax and national insurance, meaning that you make a saving on the costs of your childcare every month.
  • Helping you plan for the future. Teachers joining the Trust will become a member of the
    Teachers’ Pension Scheme.  For support staff we adopt the Local Government Pension Scheme which is one of the most competitive in the country.
  • Candidates moving from the public sector without a break in service can be reassured that
    continuous service will be honoured.
