Additional benefits to working at Corby Technical School:

• A fixed 8 week term structure allows for five standardised terms meaning that learning can be structured and delivered with consistency.  Holidays also fall outside ‘normal’ term structures allowing for inexpensive travel opportunities.

• As part of the Brooke Weston Trust opportunities for staff development and career progression go beyond the school walls; fostering talent is a key aspect of our culture. 

• Within the Trust we have a dedicated Teaching School and all staff regularly attend professional development sessions either as participants or facilitators. The Teaching School has forged partnerships with professionals across the Trust, ranging from primary through to higher education providers.   This partnership and expertise across the educational spectrum, allows the Teaching School to offer fantastic opportunities for our staff.

• All staff receive free meals (breakfast and lunch) and are able to participate in a Car Salary Sacrifice Scheme.  A reduced price membership to the local gym is also available.
