• Support the faculty leader in ensuring the smooth and effective daily running of the technology department. 

• Ensure the technology team maintains high standards in teaching and learning and student progress. 

• Have excellent subject knowledge. 

• Have a keen interest in developing the food technology and health and nutrition areas within technology.

• Support the development of another area of technology at Cove School.  In return you can expect: 

• Excellent support and a wide range of opportunities for professional development. • A dedicated team who place students at the heart of everything. 

• Great students who are proud to be part of the school. • An open and honest professional culture and learning community.
