Ambition Hub

We are proud to welcome you to the Ambition Hub: a rich and diverse programme of professional development opportunities for staff across the Brooke Weston Trust.

As a Trust, our core values resonate powerfully through our actions: Ambition for All is the founding stone of the Ambition Hub.

This innovative new development was borne out of our deep commitment to our staff and the belief that, in supporting your continued development, then, in turn, you will use your expertise to provide the finest educational care for our young people.

'I believe passionately in your professionalism and want to provide you with every opportunity to fulfil your personal career ambitions with us.

'I believe you should be supported to work brilliantly as a whole school team and in smaller teams across your school or the Trust.

'I believe we should encourage and celebrate you exercising your skilled judgement in the best interests of the children in your care, so I will never insist on a ‘one size fits all’ approach, though we do and should have lots in common.'

– Dr Andrew Campbell, CEO Brooke Weston Trust
