Why work with Plymouth CAST?
Over the past two years, Plymouth CAST has seen rapid improvement in school standards and systems. We are committed to developing the skills and leadership potential of all staff. We deliver CPD training in partnership with Best Practice Network, so teachers are able to access exceptional middle and senior leadership training opportunities. We also offer a range of apprenticeships to staff across the Trust.
We are continually building and developing our CPD offer to ensure that our staff have access to high-quality training to support them in their career and professional aspirations.
Working in schools can be challenging at times, which is why well-being and maintaining a healthy work-life balance is so important.
The South West needs little introduction with it being recently listed as having the best quality of life of anywhere in England and Wales (The Guardian, 2019). Our region offers an unrivalled lifestyle choice for those who wish to combine a career with the opportunity to enjoy a superb work-life balance. Many of our staff have moved to Devon, Cornwall and Dorset to access these outstanding areas of natural beauty, exploring the stunning coastlines, rolling hills and woodland walks, or the dramatic vistas of Dartmoor and Exmoor.
Property is wide-ranging and amongst some of the most affordable in the UK making our region perfect for those seeking an outstanding location to set up home.
