Working in GLT Schools

Staff are our most valued asset and we aim to support them both in their current roles and to develop them for their future careers.  Working alongside the teaching staff, we have a skilled support staff team who perform vital roles within the school.  Continued professional development plays an important role in ensuring that the quality of teaching is very high in the school. There are many opportunities for cross-trust professional development, with staff from all three schools working collaboratively on research and teaching projects in many areas. We have a GLT professional development conference each year for all our staff and run an exciting and innovative ‘Empowering Teacher’ programme across the trust.

Other benefits the GLT can offer include:

  • A culture of promoting GLT staff within and across our trust - we have an excellent record of developing outstanding teachers and preparing staff for senior leadership 
  • Outer-London salary scales with easy access to central London 
  • Extensive parking on site for free
  • Access to Workplace Options scheme, for confidential and independent employment advice  
  • Access to sports facilities
  • A two-week October half term break
  • Membership of the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) or Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) 
  • Childcare Vouchers
