Smart Multi-Academy Trust consists of eight primary schools in the North-West area of Newcastle upon Tyne. At Smart they provide a high quality, bespoke education full of the best opportunities and experiences to help every child learn, be happy and ultimately successful in life.

Rosie, the Administration apprentice, has grown in both in knowledge and confidence within her role and is excelling. She was recruited via learningSkills, then put forward to attend an interview at Smart Multi-Academy Trust

We spoke to Colin Lofthouse, CEO of Smart Multi-Academy Trust, regarding bolstering his workforce with an apprentice via learningSkills.

“Rosie joined Cheviot Primary on a Level 2 Administration Apprenticeship as a 16 year old school leaver. She learned well and became part of the team”, said Colin.

“The opportunity arose for her to stay on and complete her Level 3. When a full-time role became available in another of our Trust’s schools, Stocksfield Avenue Primary, she jumped at the chance and was successful. It feels great that Rosie has been given the opportunity to train and begin her career in work within our Trust”.
