What’s so great about teaching in Norfolk anyway?

As well as being a simply beautiful part of the world, Norfolk’s impressive offering for teachers sets it apart from other regions and makes it a serious contender for education professionals considering relocating to find a teaching lifestyle to love.

 Our ambition is to serve our communities by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We want all who learn and work in our academies to play an active part within our family and wider networks as we continue to develop and grow.”

The Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) is committed to valuing and nurturing their teachers, to ensure that you can give your best. Here are five great reasons they think you should consider making the move to teach with them.

Their values

The trust is strongly influenced by their Christian values. That means they put people at the centre of the organisation and want to see them flourish and grow. They achieve this by providing a learning environment whereby all children and young people can flourish and succeed, regardless of their background or beliefs.

First class training and professional development for NQTs and experienced teachers

DNEAT has a formalised and robust Career Entitlement of self-led development and national training programmes to ensure that teachers’ development is invested in and focussed upon. This includes an outstanding NQT programme, subject leadership networks, an Assessment Hub and Senior Leadership development. You can expect:

– investment in your professional development and future career

– access to services that enable you to focus more on leading, teaching and learning

– the security of working in a climate of shared accountability

– access to development opportunities within the group of DNEAT academies

– dedicated support from a key professional

– peer to peer networking, collaboration, challenge and support

– opportunities to contribute to the development of a growing organisation and trust-wide improvement initiatives

– a research-based approach to academy improvement that builds capacity from within

– a values-led approach based on Christian principles that underpins the attitudes and behaviour of individuals and the family of academies

Living and working in Norfolk

Norfolk offers a wonderful quality of life with easy access to sandy beaches, picture postcard villages and the outstanding Norfolk Broads. Norwich is a UNESCO City of Literature hosting literary festivals. The NR6 Postcode area (North Norwich) was voted second best place to live in a national poll.

Compared to other vibrant cities, the cost of living is attractive, with the average cost of a semi-detached house in Norwich as of January 2017 at £235,740 (source home.co.uk). Furthermore, you can say goodbye to stressful commutes: the strong roads and infrastructure mean you spend less time in in traffic jams and more time focusing on what you do best.
