The Board is looking to appoint a Fine Art Technician to join our growing team from September. The successful candidate's role will be to work with our Art Departments to provide technical and creative support for practical lessons, ensuring that resources and equipment and areas in creative arts are suitably maintained and fit for purpose. They will support the learning and teaching activities working closely with staff and pupils. The post holder will also be responsible to the Art Lead Teacher for an agreed level of expenditure and for maintaining budget information. In addition, the successful candidate will have access to light filled studio space within the school to be used as required during the school week.
The Kingston Academy is a new Free Secondary School in North Kingston, which opened for the first time in September 2015 with a cohort of Year 7 pupils. The school will grow annually by an additional year group until 2021. TKA has received a substantial capital grant for the refurbishment of the existing educational facilities and for additional new modern buildings. Our mission is to provide a world-class education for all the young people within our community to ensure that every pupil is safe, happy and succeeds. In Autumn 2017, the beginning of our third year of operation, we have over 500 pupils across the three year groups of 7, 8 and 9.
This role would be well suited to an art graduate who is considering entering the teaching profession in the future.
