Where to find us
Throughout the year we employ a number of apprentices across Leigh Academies Trust within our primary, secondary and SEN academies, as well as Leigh Academies Trust Head Office. You can register your details with us today and begin your journey with us! We can offer advice for those who are looking to embark on an apprenticeship - there is no time like the present to start thinking about the next steps in your career! We can arrange phone calls or face to face meetings at times convenient to you to support you!
All we require at this stage is for you to fill in a few details and upload an up-to-date copy of your CV so that we can get a full understanding of your experience and your availability in terms of working days per week. Our LAT Apprenticeships team will then make contact with you as soon as possible after registering your details to discuss what we have to offer, current opportunities across our academies or those that may be available in due course.
Our academies and Leigh Academies Trust often recruit for the following apprenticeship programmes:
- Business Administrator (Level 3)
- ICT Technician (Level 3)
- Property Maintenance Operative (Level 2)
- Teaching Assistant (Level 3)
- Technical Support Technician Engineer (Level 3)
Hear from a previous apprentice of ours who completed her Level 3 Business Admin qualification with LAT Apprenticeships:
"I recently completed a Business Administrator Level 3 Apprenticeship with LAT Apprenticeships. The team were always available to guide me and provide reassurance when I needed it. They allowed the apprentices to work collaboratively and independently within the module sessions that took place which was very helpful and also gave us an insight into other workplaces. I would not have achieved a distinction without the support they gave me."
Being part of Leigh Academies Trust: As of 1st September 2023, our Trust comprises 31 geographically organised academies (15 secondaries, 14 primaries and 2 special) educating 20,000 students, and employing 3,000 talented staff. The Trust is establishing four ‘clusters’ of academies: North Kent; Central Kent; South East London; Medway. In addition, the Trust is responsible for one of the region’s biggest initial teaching training organisations, a large teaching school hub and is an accredited apprenticeship provider. Our future plans are found in our Vision 2030 document available on our website.
As part of Leigh Academies Trust, you will have ample opportunity to collaborate with your peers both within the academy and across the whole Trust. This is an important part of our vision as we know through experience that we perform better when we work together. You are supported to undertake regular self-development to continue your professional development and hopefully progress further within the organisation.
