At Connect, we appreciate the contribution of every staff member. From teachers and classroom assistants to the many other roles that make a school run smoothly, everyone is valued.

This care for our staff is underpinned by our trust’s effective system of management, where every employee has access to the support they need. Plus, our positive and forward-thinking approach is reflected in excellent professional development opportunities.

Staff development

The people who make a school run from day to day are an essential ingredient in its success. That’s why we make professional development one of our top priorities. We invest to ensure that our staff are skilled, engaged and supported for the crucial jobs they all do.
