About the employer

Isle Education Trust (IET) is a Multi-Academy Trust of primary, secondary and alternative provision academies that grew from the desire to ensure that local children received the highest standards of education in order to enable them to go on and be responsible, well rounded members of society, with a wealth of opportunities at their feet. At Isle Education Trust we have a simple aim; to deliver the best quality teaching and learning experiences we can for all stakeholders; students, parents and staff without losing the personality of the academies in the trust. To do this we expect excellence from everyone; Excellence in engagement Excellence in communication and Excellence in self This is the IET mind-set. Each academy has its own mind-set which underpins all that they do and feeds back in to this expectation of excellence. Our students are at the heart of everything we do and we aim to ensure every single one of them has the support and guidance they need in order to reach their full potential. We believe that every individual matters – learners, staff, parents and governors. The Trust places equal emphasis on enjoying learning inside and outside of the classroom. We feel passionately that all students should have the opportunity to be involved in a broad range of activities, regardless of gender, background or religion. In this way students gain a breadth of experience to enable them to develop into highly sought after individuals in whatever route they take upon leaving the Trust. IET is committed to supporting academies to achieve this goal by celebrating what is unique about each setting, whilst providing structures and mechanisms to reduce pressures on Principals and leaders by absorbing roles such as finance, HR, Estates Management, IT and other statutory obligations in to the IET Centralised Services team. As a result, Principals are able to devote their time and energy to managing teaching, learning and the quality of education within their academy so that it is the very best that it can be. We pride ourselves on being a Multi Academy Trust where individuals matter.
