Professional Growth

Our Professional Growth strategy will tell you everything that you need to know about our approach for the next 3 years. The strategy itself will be under continuous review but the intention will remain fixed – our journey may take a different path but our destination is always the same.

We will provide a world class education for our children and we will make sure that we have done everything we can to allow them to cope in the wider world when they leave us.

The City Learning Trust is committed to staff development and understand that it is imperative to have great quality opportunities for staff to ensure the absolute best for our young people. This takes time and so our CPD commitment is a minimum of 100 hours bespoke training based on individual need.

The City Learning Trust promises world class education and experiences for all of our young people. To facilitate this, we understand that our staff are our most valuable and precious resource. CLT’s Professional Development package is exceptional and designed to ensure that we develop and retain great educators with no compromises. To develop our people, CLT has created a holistic package to address the needs of every member of our staff team – ensuring that they are always the best version of themselves for our young people, every lesson, every day.

Our ‘Building Talent’ programme is about ensuring the strengths of our workforce are recognised and put to good use – so that our young people feel the benefit. Our talent framework is based on a shared dialogue, receptive to new ideas, agile enough to move quickly and intended to nurture all of our colleagues.

Understand the culture of the City Learning Trust through our key priorities. We measure our success in these areas through the voices of our stakeholders.

United by our values, we place children and young people first in everything we do.

"It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to the City Learning Trust. Since 2014, we have worked together as a partnership of academies, proud to serve our children and young people across the city of Stoke-on-Trent.

Nelson Mandela once commented that, ‘there can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children’.

We hold to this statement with every decision that we make across the City Learning Trust. We are committed to giving everything, everyday so that our children can be the best that they can be."
