About The HEART Education Trust
The HEART Education Trust is a Norwich based trust, committed to improving the life-chances of children and young people through excellence in education, encouraging pupils to challenge themselves and hold high aspirations in their academic learning, personal and social development. We encourage pupils within our family of Trust Academies to challenge both the self and externally imposed restrictions, to hold high aspirations for their futures and to develop a thirst for learning. We understand that the way to achieve this is through ensuring consistently high standards of teaching and broad opportunities for learning via a rich and relevant curriculum. Our Trust Academies aim to ensure that our pupils are well prepared to make the most of future opportunities as citizens within an ever changing world.
We are looking for a passionate and proactive teacher who is committed to helping our pupils succeed. You will have opportunities to develop your expertise through amazing CPD, a tailored career plan and to work in a collaborative and supportive environment.
Listen to what our staff say…
‘The Trust has a fantastic in house CPD programme which all members of staff are actively involved in. Working for the Heart Trust means working as one big family. Even though I work in a one form entry school, I always know there are other teachers from my year group to call on for support and advice. The Trust is very supportive if ever you have any worries or issues. Staff mental health and wellbeing is an important issue to leaders.
The Trust places great importance on teachers being able to carry out their own research into different teaching methods and to work on these in our classes. I really value the opportunity to try out new teaching methods with my class and share the outcomes with my colleagues.’ Lorraine Y2
‘The opportunities are endless and perfect for career development. I have never worked with a more caring and trustworthy team. It is no exaggeration to say I start and end my working days with a big smile on my face – I love working for the Heart Education Trust!’ Charlotte Y3
