BET is a fast moving and exciting place to work with every school within our Trust free to shape their individual character.
Our brilliant teachers, support staff and leaders share a commitment to providing a first class education to the children within their schools and as a Trust we strive to ensure that our provision enables every child to fulfil their potential.
As an employer we know that our people are the key to our success and for this reason believe in creating great places to work where people feel supported and encouraged to be the best they can possibly be. Staff within our schools can expect to be challenged and motivated to achieve their ambitions, and such is the scale and scope of the Trust’s school-to-school support work, successful candidates can expect to receive rapid promotion either through direct placement or via secondments from their home school.
We always welcome interest from teachers and support staff who would like to join our Trust.
