Career Development

As a group of twelve Catholic Schools across Bedford and Northamptonshire, we offer fantastic opportunities for growth in your career at all starting points. We are a Trust of over 2000 students and 600 staff. We believe that we are stronger together and that we can be much more than our collective parts. 

We support you in your career pathway and encourage staff at all levels to apply for the dynamic Heading Up Pathway, which is a bespoke Leadership Development Programme, written and delivered by our School Improvement Team for staff in our Trust. The programme supports, enables and inspiring the upcoming leaders of our Catholic Community of OLICAT Schools. 

We also have a programme of support and development for our Early Career Teachers (ECT) and work closely with our teacher training partners to provide ITT student placement opportunities across Primary and Secondary schools in our Trust.
