Annual Leave entitlement
A generous annual leave is offered with entitlement depending upon grade and length of service in local government.
Free Support via an employee assistance and counselling service
Access to free, external, confidential advice and face-to-face counselling on personal and/or work-related issues. We also offer employees an in-house Occupational Health service supporting health and wellbeing.
Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
The Pension Scheme is an important part of your employment package. How much it costs you depends on how much you're paid, but it will be between 5.5% and 7.5% of your pay.
Flexible working gives employees the opportunity to achieve a better balance between work and other commitments - often by making small changes to working patterns and hours. Managers will make every effort to appreciate an employee's needs such as family responsibilities, work and caring responsibilities and be flexible as possible to try and accommodate their required working hours.
People Development Offer
Mirroring the vision of the ATT Institute, the People Development offer at BHA seeks to foster a culture of lifelong learning. Leaders, teachers and support staff share in this vision for their own development that focuses on how each member of staff can learn from their own practice and the practice of others.
This year, our offer includes a series of ‘pathway’ sessions, opted into by teaching and support staff, underpinned by the launch of our incremental coaching programme.
