Local housebuilder Barratt Developments has announced that it will offer a discount of up to three per cent off the price of a new home for anyone who works at a nursery, school, college or university.

The Education Workers Scheme will work by granting buyers a £750 discount for every £25,000 they spend on their new home up to £15,000.

Barratt Developments said the discount is designed to help first time buyers get onto the property ladder as well as those who already own a property to secure a brand new home for a reduced price.

To mark the launch of the pilot scheme, the housebuilder is also offering £200 school fund contributions for every sale of employees of that school purchasing a home with Barratt Developments in Micklefield.

Paul Hogan, Sales Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said: “The teachers, tutors, lecturers and support staff who work in Micklefield have done a tremendous job in challenging circumstances over the last 18 months, so we wanted to thank them in the form of some extra support for those who might be looking to buy a new home.

"We have a range of properties available for first-time-buyers and growing families alike, and our sales advisors are on hand to arrange appointments and viewings around busy schedules for anyone eager to find out more.”
