Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) is a national family of schools committed to delivering an excellent education that launches all the children in our care into a remarkable life.

We’re one of the largest networks of schools in England with 57 schools in virtually every region of the country. It’s a fascinating time to join our team as we pivot from a period of financial turnaround to becoming a truly high-performing organisation. 

We believe that the achievement gap across our system is a provision gap and every child has an entitlement to an excellent education in every classroom, every day. 

We are currently recruiting for our classroom-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme where you'll gain a PGCE (Post-Graduate Certificate of Education) and your Qualified Teacher Status whilst working hands-on in the classroom as a Science or Maths Teacher. Immediately having impact, your tutor and coach will support you to build up your independent teaching time during the year.

  • Weekly coaching and mentoring: every week you’ll be observed by your in-school coach, so they can offer you positive feedback and bite-sized improvement targets.
  • An allocated trained lead planner who will help you create effective lessons, developing your planning skills and giving you the opportunity to ask detailed subject -knowledge questions.
  • Weekly training: in-person/virtual training sessions with your tutors/peers.
