We are looking for future teachers from all walks of life who are as diverse and vibrant as the communities we serve. Join us and benefit from a tailored package of support and development from outstanding, experienced staff and tutors.
The Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT) is a Multi-Academy Trust covering Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, Leicester City, Northamptonshire, Peterborough and the East Coast. We currently have 37 open academies, educating over 18,000 pupils aged 3 to 19. Working mainly in areas with high levels of socio-economic disadvantage, our mission is to inspire and to ensure that every pupil thrives, makes excellent progress and succeeds.
Alongside our accredited providers The Cambridge Partnership, Bishop Grosseteste University, Coventry University, Nottingham Trent University, and the University of Nottingham, we are offering a wide range of School Direct training places to start in September 2023. Based in one of our academies, you will study for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Masters credits, and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Since 2013 we have successfully trained almost 200 teachers through School Direct, with many former trainees now in positions of leadership. If you continue your teaching career with us we will provide ongoing support and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) specific to every stage of progression, through our new GAT Institute of Teaching.
