Work for Us

At The Baytree Centre we look for staff who will be able to engage with our beneficiaries and inspire them to achieve goals they hadn’t dreamt of by raising their aspirations and motivation. Core to all our provision is character development – this is what makes Baytree unique in the sector.

Our beneficiaries’ learning is central to the work of The Baytree Centre, but we also believe that for this to happen our staff must be inspirational. Not only what we teach and how we teach it, but also what we do and how we behave are absolutely fundamental to ensuring that our students want to learn and learn well.
