Our team of staff are inspirational, motivated and committed, in addition to being dedicated, experienced and well-qualified. They enjoy their jobs and care deeply about our students, and that shines through every day.
We have a combination of forty-four teaching and mentoring staff, 2 administrative staff, and six site staff. We also have a strong Senior Management Team. As a charity, we benefit from the wide experience of our Board of Trustees.
Our teachers come from diverse backgrounds. Qualified teachers, hold a degree in the particular discipline that they teach. The teachers all have a flair for helping young people learn to love education and extending young people’s knowledge and understanding. All are excellent teachers and are particularly good at helping students to develop their thought processes and grow into confident, capable young people.
Learning mentors work with our young people in a range of settings, individually and in small groups. They support students in all aspects of their education and personal development. It is challenging but rewarding work. Many of our mentors have extensive experience working with children and young people, and the majority hold related qualifications.
The Senior Management Team brings a strong set of educational and business skills to Values Academy. With more than 40 years’ experience in education between them, their backgrounds are in law, business, teaching, counselling, mentoring, mental health and the safeguarding and welfare of young people.
Values Academy is a charity, so we have a Board of Trustees. We’re very lucky to be able to call upon their wide range of skills and experience. Our trustees’ backgrounds are in business ownership and senior corporate management, law, and education.
