Leigh Academies Trust (LAT) needed a consistent approach to professional development across a geographically-dispersed workforce.
The ethos of LAT is about shaping lives and transforming communities, with a boundless ambition for students so that they can achieve the best in their lives. The only way the trust can achieve that is by equipping staff across the trust with the right knowledge and skills.
With the current challenges around staff recruitment, the trust needed to make sure its staff had access to the best possible learning and development. They provide all of their staff – not just teachers – with access to courses on safeguarding and health & safety and the LMS allows the trust to target e-learning to certain groups of professionals who would otherwise have little time to undertake training.
