Why work for us?
Why work at Ark Victoria Academy?
Ark Victoria Academy is an "all through family school". It is an ethos that we have worked so hard to establish since we opened, and which we know is valued by our families.
Training and development at Ark Victoria Academy
Our success would not have been possible without great teachers, which is why we offer the very best training for all our staff. We provide regular coaching sessions and have an open-door policy for teachers so that peers can share learning and best practice. Our training doesn’t stop once you reach a certain level or learn a certain skill – we’ll support you throughout your whole career, from starting out as a trainee to running your own school.
Support at Ark Victoria Academy
There is a real sense of community at our school. Every teacher in each year group gets together for PPA at the same time to plan together, have year group meetings, or general discussions about upcoming assemblies and trips – meaning that staff can collaborate and support one another.
More training days
In order to deliver the best training and network events, we offer twice as many training days as standard.
Three times a year, people working in specific roles or subject areas get together to share best practice and deepen their subject knowledge with peers from across the Ark network.
Ark online training
Our online, cloud-based learning platform supports your development - delivering exciting content straight to you, from exemplary teaching video clips to best practice resources.
Your school will develop and deliver its own training sessions which are responsive to need.
You’ll work with colleagues from different subjects, schools and cities, and have the chance to take on network-wide responsibilities such as leading programmes or training.
