Working for a MITRE school offers a plethora of opportunity for employees to develop and progress in their chosen career. At the heart of the Minster Trust for Education is the Minster Teaching School Alliance, which has a long heritage of providing the very best professional learning for those working in education:
- for those seeking to join the teaching profession;
- for those developing and honing their skills;
- for leaders at all levels in school settings;
- for support staff seeking to provide a first class service.
Working in a MITRE school affords each employee the chance to benefit from the very best training programmes, many nationally accredited. There is also an expectation for all to engage in action based research and learning from others. Many staff lead training, subject hubs and support others through their designations as National, Local, Specialist and Minster Leaders of Education.
In summary working for MITRE will support your career development and help you to be the best in your field.
What people say...
"I have been given the confidence to believe in myself as a practitioner, that what I do in the classroom on a daily basis is of good quality."
An experienced secondary teacher
"I now have conviction about what is best for my pupils, especially as I have recently returned to teaching following a career break to raise my children."
An infant teacher returning to work
"An excellent opportunity not only to reflect on my own teaching practice, but also to pick up both ideas and even inspiration form colleagues in both similar teaching fields, and very different ones."
A recently qualified teacher
"A fantastic learning opportunity, with lots of contact and observation of pupils, and lots and lots and lots of advice from all the staff around me, not just those in my department. Yes, the workload is challenging, but the opportunities to learn that School Direct has offered me, are immense."
A trainee teacher (secondary)
"It has been challenged to think deeply about my practice as a leader but it is worth it. I am learning so much and feel I am making a difference."
