Our People Strategy

Like many schools, and their overarching organisations, the UST prioritises the support and development of its staff. Our people are our most important resource. However, our approach is special given our expertise in developing talent.

The UST has its School of Education whose remit is to develop and support all its staff. The School offers training courses, an annual conference and bespoke support for its staff so they can develop their skills. The work of the School of Education is primarily focussed on developing the skills of our teaching staff, but essential training (for example on safeguarding, health and safety, information technology, etc) is available for all our staff.

Overall the Trust looks at its staffing policies under three broad headings:

  • Recruitment and Retention
  • People Development
  • Well-being & Workload

This year we have seconded some of our most talented staff into the UST School of Education to further develop our work to support our staff.

Each application pack will contain information relevant to that role, however if you would like some general information please get in contact with us.
