The Bordesley Multi Academy Trust is a high-quality education provider serving the Redditch and Worcestershire community. We are a small, well-connected alliance of four schools: one first school, two middle schools and one high school. Our guiding principles of trust, autonomy, respect, equity, and outstanding relationships allow us to raise aspirations in the community we serve.

Training to teach with us will guarantee an exceptional teacher training experience. The professional development we offer is underpinned by research evidence, which has allowed us to develop a teaching, learning and assessment framework which is aligned to the Early Career Framework, the Great Teaching Toolkit and Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction. More broadly, we encourage all our trainee teachers to become full and active members of our alliance community by taking part in student extra-curricular activities, contributing to staff meetings, and grasping opportunities for involvement in all areas of school life.  

Teachers who have trained with us have given us incredibly positive feedback on their experience, which has allowed them to develop their practice more effectively and has led many to return to our alliance for ECT positions. We endeavour to make our schools happy places for both our staff and children. Schools within our Alliance promote workplace well-being, work with colleagues to offer exciting career opportunities and specialise in developing leaders at all stages of their career.

We are keen to recruit individuals who share our passion for creating happy and rewarding futures for our young people and who wish to work in a thriving and vibrant school community.

The St John Bosco Catholic Multi-Academy (SJBCA) was established in September 2013. SJBCA grew out of a partnership with a secondary and two feeder primary schools within the Dudley Borough. The desire for these schools to work together was to support and grow the Catholic educational opportunities for the children of Dudley to access quality Catholic education from 3-18 years. The multi-academy company comprised of a secondary school, Bishop Milner Catholic College and Sixth Form, St Chad’s Catholic Primary School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School until April 2020 when a further secondary school, Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School and a primary St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, both in Sandwell, joined the St John Bosco MAC family.   The MAC grew further in September 2021 when St John Bosco Catholic Primary School, Sandwell (including the English Hub) and St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School in Walsall joined. Most recently on the 1st of June 2022 we welcomed St Mark’s Catholic Primary School to our family of schools.

The multi-academy is currently responsible for over 3000 children and young people, along with more than 350 staff. As part of our mission as a multi-academy we want to provide opportunities for the next generation of teachers to train in both our primary and secondary settings which serve across Dudley, Walsall, Sandwell and greater Birmingham. Trainees will have full access to the professional training offered within the multi-academy as part of our ‘People Strategy’ and also gain access to numerous potential employers (two secondary schools and 6 primary schools over the course of their training year.
