Working directly with trainee teachers, through the SCITT, has taken my role within the school and the Trust into a completely different direction. I am able to work with teachers from day one of their career in the Trust and share my experience of classroom practices to guide, coach and mentor trainees in the Trust.

Working in the Trust, teachers and associate staff benefit from sharing best practice from a wide range of expertise across each school. Staff benefit from joint training and a collaborative approach, leading to a richer experience for both staff and students.
The Trust is dedicated to developing, growing and retaining talented leaders and staff across the Trust and invests heavily is staff development. As the Trust has developed a wealth of opportunities for staff has arisen, enabling us to develop exciting career paths for those who work within the Trust beyond that in a traditional, stand-alone academy or school. The range of opportunities available to staff working within the Trust is enrichened through the status of South Hunsley School and 6th Form College, as lead school in Wolds Teaching School Alliance and through the Trust being an accredited School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provider.
The development of the Trust offers excellent opportunities for career progression. It has enabled me to grow into the role of Assistant Head teacher for Curriculum and Standards, whilst remaining working within a Trust school which has the same values that I feel passionately about.
