    The Lumen Learning Trust NQT offering

    We recognise that for a Newly Qualified Teacher, the task of finding a job starts in earnest many months before you take up a post in September. You will need to select a school which is affordable to live nearby, has good transport links and routes, and one where you won’t feel unsupported or alone.

    Schools in the Lumen Learning Trust have a very strong package for those who choose to work in one of our schools in Staines, Ashford or Shepperton. These include:

    • Two weeks paid training in the last two weeks of July.
    • The opportunity to work for additional income at our popular Summer holiday clubs over August.
    • Strong career progression process from NQT+1.
    • Fully secured NQT PPA time, equating to 20% teaching time in total per week.
    • A teaching assistant for a minimum of three hours in your class every day.
    • A dedicated support team, with a Year Leader, mentor and Phase Leader to help.
    • Support from a dedicated Enrichment Leader.
    • A programme of on-going professional development.
    • An active and genuine programme of social events.
    • Subsidised lunches and complimentary hot drinks.
