School of Education

LiFE MAT Primary

LiFE MAT and Partners School Direct is a unique partnership of 9 Secondary and 4 Primary schools in Leicestershire.

Our partnership of schools allows us to be small enough to care and know each trainee really well so that we can identify needs and target support. We encourage our trainees and staff to identify aspirational improvement goals in a supportive workplace culture. Our goal is to create life-long educators who are passionate about the profession and committed to young people. We offer a range of experiences where you will develop your potential as a teacher.

Our vision

  • To develop outstanding teachers of the future and guide them on a career path within our partnership schools.
  • To enhance and support trainees’ professional development.
  • To provide our trainees with outstanding support and development in a positive and caring environment.

We offer you:

  • an expectation that successful graduates of this programme will be considered for employment in our partnership of schools
  • the maximum possible amount of time working with students and developing the skills to become an outstanding teacher.
  • the earliest possible opportunity to get into classrooms and make a difference to students.
