People Solutions

Get in touch

Every school or Multi Academy Trust is different.  They all have their own personality, culture, legacy and operational challenges.  Common to all, however, is the aim to deliver successful educational experiences and outcomes. That is why it is so important for any school or academy to create a supportive, engaging and dynamic environment – not just for pupils, but also for all teaching and support staff.

Effective people management is vital for attracting and retaining the right staff and allowing them to flourish and develop in their roles. A high collective morale, personal motivation and pride are all infectious qualities that will permeate all activities and directly support all educational objectives. However, this is not always easy to achieve when grappling with day-to-day priorities, budget limitations and operational pressure points. That is why Capita Entrust offers a range of dedicated support and advisory services to help you provide the best possible solutions and development options for your workforce.
