Working for our trust
The Nova Education Trust offers an exciting and dynamic workplace environment. We believe that staff make a difference to children and place staff development at the centre of our strategic planning.
All teaching staff are offered the opportunity to complete a funded Masters in Education programme, in partnership with The University of Nottingham. Staff are offered regular training opportunities and we run a series of in-house training schemes to prepare staff for career progression at all levels.
The Torch Teaching School Alliance offers the opportunity for wider professional networking and opportunities to lead and learn from colleagues working in a diverse range of settings. Our staff are highly professional, work hard and are appropriately rewarded for doing an excellent job.
The Nova Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and we expect all staff, partners and volunteers to share this commitment.
All staff are recruited under our safer recruitment processes, in line with DfE requirements, which includes DBS checks. We have a suite of safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance for all of our staff and volunteers to ensure we actively promote children and young people's welfare and safety.
We are also committed to equality of opportunity in employment and it is our policy to promote equal opportunities in employment, regardless of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, creed, disability, sex, age, marital status or sexual orientation. This applies to recruitment and selection practices, training, promotion and in the application of national and local agreements in respect of pay and conditions of service.
