What our staff say:
“I feel privileged to have been in the first class of Aspirer teaching students. As an Aspirer associate teacher I felt supported, encouraged and motivated. The most important and rewarding attribute that I believe the teaching school offers is the personal support, help and advice. They were always there for me. I always felt empowered by them to utilise my training. To this day, I am still in contact with my mentors, tutors and fellow associates and have made lifelong friends. After completing my training, I was lucky enough to secure a teaching position within the Aspire Educational Trust. The support that was offered through the training school is echoed throughout their academies. I would highly recommend both the training school and also working for the trust”
Diane – Teacher at Wilmslow Academy
"During my time within the Aspire Educational Trust, I have been privileged to benefit from excellent CPD and leadership development programmes which supported my progress from Class Teacher to Literacy lead to becoming an SLE. Through CPD, I have been given the opportunity to work with other skilled colleagues across the Trust - sharing good practice and developing our own knowledge and understanding of the curriculum. The level of opportunities Aspire Educational Trust gives to children and staff alike is exceptional and, as a staff member, I feel fortunate to work alongside such influential people on a daily basis".
