An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone to join a growing and increasingly successful Creative Faculty delivering Design Technology to the young people of Catterick.

If you are an exceptional and inspirational Design Technology Teacher who would be able to lead and add expertise to our team of teachers, then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a person with drive and personal ambition who will inspire and enthuse our students and instil in them a love for the subject and a desire to learn. The role will require an individual who is creative, not afraid to start from scratch with the ability to demonstrate resilience and experience of delivering innovative teaching methods to achieve improved academic outcomes. 

At Risedale Sports and Community College, the DT Department, as part of the Creative Faculty, is committed to excellence in teaching. We pride ourselves on putting the students at the centre of all we do, from creating an engaging, positive, welcoming environment to exploring cutting edge pedagogy. 

The resources and rooms of the department are superb, having had a major re-fit just 3 years ago. A suite of rooms contains a 3D printer, office, new computer suite as well as a class set of sewing machines and a bright and welcoming food technology room.

At KS4 students can choose Design and Technology/Food Preparation and Nutrition. Students follow the AQA specification. At KS3 students follow a project-based approach with time spent on design technology, resistant materials and food technology. 

We are looking to appoint a forward thinking, innovative and creative specialist. The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and committed to the philosophy of the school and ready to lead their team through collaboration and passion.  

The college offers all employees bespoke training and support; a highly cohesive and supportive staff team; outstanding CPD including up to date individualised action research; the opportunity to develop skills and interest through extra-curricular clubs; access to an exclusive benefits package and a chance to join Risedale at a very important point in the school’s development.  The College also recognises the importance of striking a healthy work-life balance and is something it strives to achieve for all its employees.

Risedale is a small but growing school with a fantastic team of staff, a wonderful group of young people and a clear but determined agenda to make sure that every student is looked after, nurtured, challenged and ultimately leaves ready for an exciting and positive future. We are at an exciting point in our journey. Outcomes are rising, attendance is above the national recommendation and we are absolutely committed to no young person being left behind; the school is passionate about ensuring that the curriculum is bespoke for each child and that teachers provide a family through our tutor group system. As a result of our hard work and dedication, not a single fixed term or permanent exclusion occurred last academic year.
