Your Next Career Step

Develop Your Career in Bradford

Career choices are personal decisions, driven by a mixture of professional and personal aspirations.  

That means thinking about what you want to achieve as a teacher, whilst at the same time enjoying a lifestyle that delivers a sustainable work/life balance.

In Bradford you can do both. Here's why.

You'll find schools that are striving to be better every day, creating a professionally exciting environment.

We have one of the first Research Schools in the country (one of just 22 across England); multiple Teaching Schools; and a growing network of multi-academy trusts which are mostly focused within the Bradford district.  All this adds up to a growing infrastructure to support professional development, as well as opportunities to work across and between schools, enabling teachers and leaders to widen their experience quickly. 

You'll find middle and senior leadership roles that are as personally rewarding as they are challenging.

There is a strong impetus for school improvement across the city, driven by passionate school leaders who put student success at the centre of everything they do. If your values mean that you thrive in roles where you can see the difference you are making to students to widen life chances, then you'll be at home in Bradford. 

You'll find a compact city, with a diverse range of schools in a relatively small area.

If your goal is to gather experience across two or three schools as part of your career plan, then you'll be able to do that within Bradford without having to constantly relocate or commute long distances.

You'll find a location where you can play hard as well as work hard - with an affordable lifestyle to provide a healthy work/life balance.
