Creative Education Trust is a network of 17 schools educating 13,500 children and young people. We are committed to providing excellent educational opportunities for children of all abilities and to building cultural capital through a wide range of co-curricular activities.
Our teacher training ethos echoes our commitment to the young people in our schools: to promote creative, integrated and pro-active thinking, ready for the challenges of the 21st Century. We work in partnership with a number of ITE providers to ensure that we are able to offer opportunities in a broad range of subjects throughout our geographically diverse Trust schools.
Creative Education Trust is committed to offering trainee teachers the best opportunities to grow and learn surrounded by supportive and experienced colleagues. Whilst we are unable to guarantee employment, historically 100% of our graduating School Direct trainees have been employed in Trust schools and continue to be supported in their development through the Early Career Framework.
If you would like to explore opportunities to join us, we currently offer School Direct training at the following schools:
Ash Green School (Coventry), Wrenn School (Wellingborough), Weavers Academy (Wellingborough), Abbeyfield School (Northampton), Milton Keynes Academy (MK), Ellis Guilford School (Nottingham), Bulwell Academy (Nottingham), Lynn Grove Academy (Great Yarmouth), and Caister Academy (Great Yarmouth).
