We know that, to achieve our vision, it is our people who will make the big difference. We aim to support our people with the following benefits
We offer competitive salaries for both teaching and non-teaching staff based on the type and level of role you do. We ensure we are treating people fairly across the Trust as well as remaining competitive. Your starting salary will be determined by the pay range for your role, your experience as well as external market conditions.
All contracted members of staff will be automatically enrolled into a pension scheme with either the Teachers Pension Scheme or the Local Government Pension Scheme (whichever is appropriate). You don’t pay tax or National Insurance on your contributions and TGAT adds a generous employer contribution, which varies depending on your salary. All staff are entitled to opt-out of the pension scheme should they wish to do so.
We recognise the importance of a good work-life balance and provide generous holiday entitlements in addition to any Bank or Public holidays. If you work part-time, your holiday entitlement will be pro-rated and usually must be taken in school closure periods. Teaching staff receive the standard school holiday allowance or as directed by their specific contract.
Flexible and Family Friendly Policies
We understand that our employment policies need to be flexible and responsive in order to promote diversity and equality, and to attract and retain the highest quality workforce. We offer flexible working opportunities and policies that are often in excess of statutory minimums.
Employee Assist Program (EAP)
Our EAP is a confidential employee benefit designed to help you deal with personal and professional problems that could be affecting your home life or work life, health and general wellbeing. Our EAP service provides a complete support network that offers expert advice and compassionate guidance for you and your close family 24/7. It covers a wide range of issues including legal, finance, property and child care as well as offering counselling and support if required
We’re proud to have a range of schemes, which recognise the achievements of our staff and show our appreciation of their contributions.
