What our staff say

“Manchester Health Academy is a fantastic place to work, having just qualified as a teacher, starting work somewhere new can often feel daunting. But I was made to feel welcome right away, and every member of staff is always happy to help! The fantastic opportunities and facilities here at MHA, make this school a great place to be, for both Staff and Students.”

“Manchester Health Academy is fantastic! I started as an apprentice and now I am a full time Learning Support Assistant with a Level 3 qualification in Learning Support and Employees Rights and Responsibilities. I work as part of a great team and have been given the opportunity to set up and run handwriting sessions which is having a really positive impact.”

“I’ve worked at Manchester Health Academy for almost six years now and I absolutely love it! Everyone is really helpful, supportive and friendly. Location wise it’s great because we are only two minutes from the motorway and fifteen minutes from the Trafford Centre, so it is perfect for that end of the week shopping trip or meal as a treat on a Friday!”

“Including the time I worked at the predecessor school, I’ve been at Manchester Health Academy for 20 years now. I think it’s an amazing, caring  place to work because of how supportive staff are to each other and because we all have brilliant relationships with the students.”
