The Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) is an exciting and inspiring place to train. We are a mature Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in the South West, with 20 entities, incorporating 8 Primary, 8 Secondary academies, an all-through 4-19 setting and a 14-19 Studio School, as well as post-16 and alternative provision in primary and secondary phases. The CLF employs around 1800 staff and we educate approximately 10,300 children and young people. Our contexts include urban, inner-city, suburban, rural and coastal catchment areas in geographically local clusters serving Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.
The CLF Institute is the centre for our SCITT, Teaching School Alliance and the Boolean Maths Hub. The CLF Institute provides a continuum of professional development for staff at all career stages; from Initial Teacher Training, support for Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT), recently qualified teachers, emerging leaders and researchers, middle, specialist and senior leaders, Headteachers and governors.
The CLF is sponsored by Rolls Royce PLC and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol); we work in partnership with UWE for the PGCE qualification for our SCITT trainees.
As a MAT providing 3-19 education, our trainees have opportunities for teaching within and beyond the phases/key stages that they are training to teach. There are often employment opportunities within the CLF and our partnership schools.
We recognise the need to recruit and train excellent teachers to work in schools in our region to support the aspirations, progress and achievement of all children including those in the most challenging circumstances.
