We are looking for recent graduates who want to make a difference to children and young people across the Country, whilst developing and learning new skills. Our graduate scheme will give a unique insight in to how a national group of schools can work together with central support.

Graduates joining our two-year programme will undertake various placements by supporting departments in undertaking project work as directed by the Head of Department in areas such as Technology, HR, Finance, Marketing, and School Improvement.

At the end of the two-year training programme, depending upon the performance of the trainee and the vacancy, our trainees will be offered permanent roles within a Central Office team at either Assistant Project Lead or Project Lead level.

Supported by experienced members of the team and having a designated mentor you will find that you will always have access to advice and support.
