We provide the support and opportunities you may need to develop and its up to you to make the most of these, but we’ll help you with lots of learning opportunities, both informal and formal, designed to help you develop inside of work – and outside too.

Working for us is all about passion, and we have lots of people who are really passionate about what they do – teaching assistants, IT technicians, teachers, caterers, leaders and curriculum experts.

We encourage all of the people who work for us to take ownership and do everything necessary to create a standout experience for our students.

Ask our people what they get up to day to day and they’ll all tell you how much they enjoy the variety, pace, and challenge of working in one of our academies, schools or Head Office. This flexibility isn’t just part of our working day – we understand that our people have lives, and want them to also enjoy their friends, family, hobbies and commitments outside of work.

Our academies offer safe and secure surroundings and the pleasure of working with great people. Working with our students and communities is pretty interesting too and you’ll play an essential role adding to their experience of education and also of Delta Academies Trust.
