Staff benefits

training and development

As a learning community Westfield recognises that staff are entitled to develop and progress. We are able to draw on our partnership with the Trust’s teaching school, the Sheffield Teacher Training Alliance (STTA), to develop our staff and offer them extensive professional development opportunities. STTA has a strong track record of developing teachers at all levels.

As part of the Trust you will be able to take advantage of opportunities working with colleagues at other schools, as well as contribute to our ever-improving practice. When you are ready to take the next step in your career we are sure you will want to stay with us. With many local schools lined up to join Chorus Trust, you will find that you can develop your career within our supportive team.

We believe our staff are our most important resource within our Trust, and do our best to support and develop them.
