What we offer

Article ImageOur schools are supportive, forward looking and well resourced. We are able to offer excellent opportunities within and across our schools, which represent a diverse range of contexts, settings and communities. Our central support team helps to provide school staff with outstanding professional development as well as the chance to get involved with projects across and beyond the Trust. We also co-lead the London South West Maths Hub which enables us to offer excellent maths CPD at all levels. 



"I had more support in my first term at Q1E than I did in my first 4 years of teaching!" Q1E teacher

"The support has really helped to make my first year in teaching positive, helping me to build on my subject knowledge and shape my teaching style." New Q1E teacher 

"Support in class feels like a collaborative effort. Feedback is always extremely useful. Each week I am excited to implement the things we have discussed." Q1E teacher 

"Induction was fantastically organised and made me feel at ease about starting" New Q1E teacher

"Staff across the four schools work together to plan their teaching. This sharing of expertise and resources is of much benefit to pupils and keeps staff workload manageable." Ofsted

To support our aspirational and inspirational curriculum we provide teachers with fully developed units and lesson plans, to which they add their own awe and wonder. We welcome applications from both new and experienced teachers.

Early Career Teacher support
We have trained over 450 Early Career Teachers in the past eight years. If you’re a new teacher, you’ll be well looked after! You’ll receive three weeks’ paid training in July, before starting in September. This will be followed by a programme of focused induction sessions in your first two years (in addition to high quality school and trust INSET), a tailored development plan, in-school mentoring, an induction lead to call on, and advice and support from our Q1E central team.
This is an exciting time for us and we want the best people to join us as we grow. We believe that “the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers.” If you are an ambitious practitioner with the drive to make a significant difference to the lives of the children we serve, we hope to hear from you.
