What makes working at R.E.A.L so special?

Get the inside scoop on what our employees really think about working at R.E.A.L….

We asked our staff to tell us why R.E.A.L. Education is such a great place to work…this is what they had to say:

It feels like you’re part of a family.”

“Supportive work environment, progressive ideas, investment in digital technology allows us to bring learning to life in the classrooms and makes it accessible to every young person. We are an education provider, not bound by the walls we teach within.”

“Dedication towards providing the best possible outcomes for our young people!”

“A dedicated team across the board from senior leaders to staff on the ground, all passionate about the achievements of young people that others have left behind.”

My colleagues and students are amazing!”

“The Referral and Intervention Team are magical. I feel extremely supported and valued, as a team member and friend. I love the ethos behind the workings of R.E.A.L. and the commitment to showing young people there is more than one way to learn and achieve. The opportunistic and inclusive nature of the provision is what makes me want to come to work every day.”

“I know that I have a whole network of support behind me should I ever need it.”

“R.E.A.L. invest not only in their students but also in their staff team and are very supportive and encouraging of their aspirations.”

“Nothing better than watching ‘lost to education’ pupils becoming confident and aspirational learners.”
