The vision of the Art, Design and Technology Department at CGS is to provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to engage with a technology focussed global creative community. Our facilities have been improved to establish a vibrant, contemporary and inspiring centre of innovation. This dynamic realisation and making space utilises state of the art equipment and emerging technologies to engage students and the Canberra community with the expressive potential of art and design practice. Our curriculum enables learners to express individuality whilst they develop the critical capacity to analyse complex information, the ability to communicate in visual and design languages, and the adaptive creativity to find solutions to problems. Students work collaboratively and individually on project based learning outcomes that embody a real world context and enable learners to explore areas of interest and relevance.
The School is seeking to appoint an inspirational and collaborative teacher who will assist the Department in its quest for excellence in teaching Design and Technology. The successful candidate will be capable of teaching junior Design and Technology for the Australian Curriculum. The ability to also teach Visual Arts would be highly desirable. This is an excellent opportunity for a dedicated and passionate educator of Design and Technology to assume a teaching position in a highly effective and prestigious school.
As a teacher, the role-holder is expected to:
- model outstanding teaching practice in and outside the classroom
- be able to teach across a broad age range of the School including for the Australian Curriculum and, where relevant, the Higher School Certificate (experience of teaching the IB is an advantage and willingness to be trained for IB teaching is essential)
- be willing to participate enthusiastically in the School’s pastoral and co-curricular programme
- attend School Chapel services and respect and uphold the School’s Anglican values and ethos, while also respecting people of all backgrounds and faith within the School community
- safeguard and promote the welfare of children
- support the School’s aims and objectives
