What we do

The education and personal development of the young people in the communities we serve are the core reasons we’re here. It takes a diverse group of individuals and teams to drive continuous school improvement and operate effectively and efficiently as an organisation.

There are many roles across our group of academies and in central functions. We all work towards the goal of ensuring our pupils and students get the best out of their time with us – and leave with a clear plan for the next stage in their journey. As well as teaching roles, we employ staff in student support services, IT, estates and facilities management to name a few.

It takes many people in varied roles to make our partnership successful. Your skills, talents and experience will add to the diversity of our workforce and that of our academies. Join us, and you'll find yourself in a vibrant, stimulating and varied environment. We're proud of our people and hope that if you join us, you'll be proud to be a Diverse Academies person too.

Who we are

Across the East Midlands, our fourteen primary, secondary and special academies passionately believe in giving the young people of our communities the very best chance in life to progress and develop.

We put our students first. We have high aspirations and expectations for all those who attend our academies. Beyond the classroom we provide opportunities to nurture existing talents, as well as opportunities to try new things, enabling our young people to develop a range of skills.

Our partnership and collaborative approach ensures our staff are part of a family of academies, with educational and operational expertise providing support and guidance across the group.

We are proud of our academies. Diverse in name and nature, we actively seek to maintain and develop both individual academy identity and characteristics. Collectively, we share and co-develop best practice for the benefit of all our academies, as part of our mission to deliver:

  • excellent teaching
  • exceptional care
  • outstanding performance

Why join us?

Students and their learning, growth and development are at the heart of everything we do and this helps nurture an environment that's all about people achieving their potential – including our employees. We work hard to create the opportunities they need to develop their skills so they can build a career with us.

Our approach is inclusive and collaborative. We challenge one another to achieve our ambitions – co-creating and sharing ideas that work, adopting common policies and practices – whilst developing each academy’s unique characteristics and ethos.

Our size also brings lots of advantages. Our CPD network offers staff significant professional development, and across our partnership there are many opportunities for employees to develop their skills and career pathways through on the job learning, secondment or progression into a new role.

There are many other benefits to working with us and we know each person's reasons for joining us will be different. Whatever your motivation, we offer a diverse range of opportunities for rewarding and fulfilling careers in a supportive environment.
