Referrals: Know a great person for the Ark network?

Great people know great people. 

Do you know someone who would be perfect for a role in an Ark school? We want to make sure our schools are filled with the highest quality teachers so we can have the biggest impact on young people's lives and make a real difference where it matters most. Teachers joining the Ark network will be supported to be their best and have access to unparalleled levels of training.

From NQTs to senior leaders, we want to hear who you know. Whether they'd be great for a role in your school or one of the 35 other schools in the Ark network, get in touch.

If they are appointed, you could receive a bonus of £200, rising to £1000 if they are a headteacher.
