Our vision is that every child should only be a short walk away from a world class school. We exist to empower, enable and inspire schools to provide an outstanding level of education and support through exceptional leadership, collaboration, innovative thinking and understanding of local needs.

In practice this means that we care passionately about all the children in our academies and believe in the difference our work can make to their lives. We have a fantastic staff of over 230 people across our academies – all dedicated to this single purpose. We don’t apologise for relentlessly driving forward improvements for the benefit of our children and staff and look for ways to collaborate within the Trust and with other schools and academies with like-minded philosophies.

There will be considerable opportunities for professional development including the Trust sponsoring you through recognised leadership qualifications. In addition there will be coaching and mentoring opportunities. We have strong links with our sponsor, Nelson and Colne College, to develop skills and potential in all Trust staff. We encourage participation in relevant networks and forums with other professionals working in education.

Pendle Education Trust implements National Teachers’ Pay Standards and the same annual leave; pension arrangements; sick pay entitlement, etc. apply. We are a flexible and supportive employer and consider job share or part-time working applications.

We have signed up to the Mindful Employer ‘Charter for Employers Positive about Mental Health’ and all of our staff can access a A 24/7 independent and completely confidential Staff Helpline which offers support for anything from work, relationships, health & wellbeing, debt and legal problems.
