Here are just a few of the benefits we offer to our staff.
Car Salary Sacrifice Scheme
BWT offers a salary sacrifice scheme to enable our employees a tax efficient way to afford a brand new car. Put simply, you can swap some of your salary before it is taxed, which means you get more car for a lot less. There is no deposit to pay, and costs for MOT, Road Tax, Car Insurance and Breakdown Assistance are all included.
Our staff can borrow up to £1000 to buy a bicycle through the Bike2Work Scheme and save up to 42% on the cost of bicycles and/or safety equipment, reducing their carbon footprint as they go!
BWT recognises the importance of our staff as key to the success of our organisation and takes steps to ensure staff are offered and have access to the support they need. All employees have access to the Education Support Partnership helpline. We also work with Employee Assist, a confidential counselling service which has been developed to support the physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of employees.
Finder’s Fee Offer
The most important and valuable asset of our Trust is the committed and passionate staff who contribute to improving the life chances of our young people. However, recruiting good quality teachers can be difficult at times. To help us recruit yet more excellent teachers into our organisation BWT offers a ‘finder’s fee’ of £1000 (per teacher recruited) to any member of staff, whatever their role in the Trust, who introduces a new teacher who fills a vacancy in any of our schools, and is still employed as a good teacher 6 months down the line
Chartered College of Teaching
BWT subsides the membership to the Chartered College of Teaching, which enables teachers to get aced to training and accreditations, and is a fantastic source for personal CPD. Follow this link for further information: https://chartered.college/
