Hylands School. Where Teachers love Teaching.
We love teaching. Simple. We love it when students "get it". When they have that penny drop moment after struggling and thinking hard. We love class discussions, we love silent contemplation and study, we also love students working together.
At Hylands we love developing our teaching. This is why we send students home early on a Tuesday and spend two hours each week talking, collaborating and planning our teaching, and then we all leave before 5pm. We understand that great teaching is the reason why students at Hylands are great learners. Nothing trumps great pedagogy.
We are seeking to appoint a dedicated, passionate, and creative full-time Teacher of Design and Technology to join our friendly and enthusiastic department. This role would suit an NQT/RQT who wishes to develop their career surrounded by experienced mentors, or a more experienced teacher. Candidates should possess the skills, knowledge and qualifications to teach Design and Technology at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A level from September 2018. The courses currently offered to students have a product design focus.
The school offers excellent working conditions and staff receive strong support for their professional development. Committed and excellent practitioners will find Hylands School a place where career development is taken very seriously.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and their achievements both inside and outside school. The post requires enhanced DBS clearance, medical checks and satisfactory references.
