Looking after your well-being
We believe well-supported, valued colleagues with a clear and shared purpose are best placed to provide for the emotional well-being of children in their care. Provided by Health Assured, our 'Employee Assistance Programme' is intended to help colleagues deal with personal problems that might adversely impact work performance, health and well-being. Typically support may include assessment, counselling and referral for individuals or their family.
Treating you as a professional
Aquinas is committed to national and local agreements affecting employment as contained in the Burgundy Book (Conditions of Service) for teachers and Green Book (National Joint Council) for associate colleagues unless superseded by statute or revised editions, or by local provisions. This includes salary scales; period of notice and termination of contract; maternity, paternity and adoption leave; leave of absence; and annual leave.
Training you throughout your career
Aquinas offers colleagues a unique 'Five Stage Career Plan' which includes specific courses for:
+ NQTs +1 (NQTPlus);
+ Teachers (AquinasTeach);
+ Leaders (AquinasLead);
+ Professionals at qualification stage (e.g. NPQH).
These courses have been uniquely crafted to re-enforce our distinctive ethos and support colleagues in their roles across the trust. They include access to:
+ Expert speakers from across our trust schools;
+ The best external providers in their respective areas;
+ Other teachers and leaders at the same stage of development;
+ Select content focusing on current research and practice;
+ School-based and trust-wide projects to improve provision and develop your expertise.
