Saint John Southworth Catholic Academy Trust



The Saint John Southworth Enterprise and Research Alliance is a teacher training provider based in central London with a thriving network of schools around the capital. Since our inception we have grown rapidly and now work with a wide range of schools and other educational institutions nationwide supporting each other in a variety of ways.

Cardinal Vaughan is proud to be the lead school in the alliance, every year providing a number of new trainees with exciting train to teach opportunities, and liaising with other schools across London to create ongoing staff development programmes.

We are currently looking for a wide range of enthusiastic, bright candidates who are excited about the prospect of training to teach! With places in over 20 subjects available, the SJSERA prides itself on providing an environment in which new teachers can flourish, grow, and excel. With dedicated mentors on hand, the courses we offer give you the chance to really get stuck into your first year of training.

We will be running a series of school experience days and webinars for those who would like to find out more information about the Train to Teach process - you can find more information here.
