I’ve been with the Trust for four years and in my first year I was provided with invaluable accommodation. I’ve had opportunities to grow and develop which has enabled me to become a lead practitioner in my subject.

SWECET is an ambitious Trust, both for its children and staff; it’s committed to the success of all within it. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and I have never felt so valued in a job before - I couldn’t recommend the Trust enough!
