Career development recruitment incentives:

  • Access and support to senior leadership programmes from the outset such as NPQSL;
  • Candidates should be looking at this post as a 2 year career pathway to becoming an Assistant Headteacher rather than just a Senior Leader of Science and STEM post;

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most.
