Article ImageTeachers across our Trust plan together and work as a community, meaning you will have excellent support and mentoring from day one, plus excellent development opportunities and fantastic resources. 

We welcome applications for class teaching roles starting in September 2024. 

At Q1E, we believe that “the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers” (McKinsey 2007). The recruitment, retention and development of high quality teachers is our highest priority. 

Staff wellbeing is very important to us. We provide clear structures, excellent resources and outstanding professional development for our staff. All teachers new to the Trust receive pre-induction training before starting in post.

We are an outward facing trust and believe in learning from the best schools and systems - you will have lots of opportunity to watch outstanding practice and get involved in wider projects across our dynamic Trust, as well as be supported to progress in your teaching career.  There are opportunities for new teachers to take on leadership responsibilities for the right candidate.

We offer a high quality, well-resourced and carefully structured curriculum, complemented by high quality specialist teaching. We strive to meet the needs of all our children – doing ‘Whatever It Takes’ to help children fulfil their potential. 

At Q1E we offer a range of staff benefits which include: Teachers’ Pension Scheme; free coffee and tea; free on-site parking; interest free ‘travel to work loan scheme’ and Cycle-to Work Scheme.

All posts in Q1E schools are subject to an enhanced DBS with barred list check.  It is an offence to apply if you are barred from working with children. We may carry out online searches of shortlisted candidates.
