What we can offer you:

The Odyssey Trust for Education is committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for the young people in the communities we serve. We recognise that our staff are therefore our most precious commodity; without a happy, positive and well-trained staff body, we will be unable to deliver the first-class education that our students deserve. 

As such we have committed ourselves to offering 10 staff training days across the academic year and extensive CPD pathways to support staff in being at the cutting edge of their craft; our CPD pathways offer the opportunity to work towards achieving Nationally recognised Qualifications such as: NPQML/NPQSL/NPQH, Lead Practitioner Accreditation, all the way up to a Masters degree. Professional development across the Trust is supported by a large and growing network of high-profile leaders of education with platforms for school improvement on a National and International level. Opportunities for colleagues to experience professional growth are also identified across the Trust, whether that be project based or on a fixed-term secondment to a different school. 

We work to ensure the positive wellbeing of our staff; our work kindly initiative sits at the heart of everything we do. In joining the Trust, you will be joining a large team with One Equal Temper of Heroic Hearts.
