Why Join PET-Xi?

In our latest employee engagement survey, PET-Xi scored an amazing 92% (up 2% outperforming the UK average of 68%). We know that employee engagement goes beyond motivation and simple job satisfaction, it’s also seen as a combination of commitment to the organisation and its values with a willingness to help colleagues around them and improve wellbeing, which is why we know it’s the people of PET-Xi that make the difference and make us such an amazing place to work!

Training Roles

PET-Xi works with tried and tested expert practitioners in a wide range of subjects who are responsible for the delivery of the subject content in the classroom. Through our rigorous selection process PET-Xi ensures all subject experts have proven experience in delivering specific exam board content and specifications.

Subject experts possess a degree in their subject and suitable teaching qualifications and the majority will have experience of marking exam papers.

The PET-Xi Methodology™ allows Experts to concentrate on the subject content, free from the concerns of engaging learners or identifying which ones may be struggling, as the balance of the team in the classroom are there to support them.
You’ll know a PET-Xi Motivational Lead when you meet them. The big smile, warm greeting and explosive optimism are impossible to miss.

We select our Motivational Leads very carefully, from a group of ‘classroom tried and tested’ Learner Support staff.

They’re the best of the best, engagement specialists trained in proven methods to maintain momentum, pace, and intensity in the classroom.

The Motivational Lead is responsible for all aspects of the classroom, making sure each day flows well and learners get the maximum benefit from the time spent in the PET-Xi programme.
Supports play a vital role in the PET-Xi classroom dynamic. Depending on the size of the cohort in attendance there will always be two to three supports in the classroom.

They are carefully assessed, must pass a PET-Xi internal examination on the subject area they’ll be working in and they must pass a live classroom trial before they’re allowed to join a team.

They are the eyes and ears of the team, watching, listening, and identifying learners who may not be fully engaged or are struggling with the subject content.
