Our Principles for Staffing and HR

All Academies must follow the Trust centrally agreed approach to:

  • Maximum of 80% of GAG spent on staffing
  • Standardised job descriptions and person specifications
  • Recruitment, including advertising of posts and documentation, centrally managed
  • ‘On boarding’ of new employees – induction to MAT
  • Directed time budget
  • HR file contents/checklists
  • Centrally managed transfer and secondment of staff.
  • Centrally approved decision to allow temporary allowance/honorarium
  • Centrally coordinated and funded CPD programmes e.g. Masters, Princes Teaching Institute, Ambition School Leadership etc.
  • Commitment to MAT workload strategy
  • Individual academies are expected to manage staff records, staff deployment and induction of new staff.
