Ark Burlington Danes Academy is a non-selective 11-18 comprehensive school. The academy opened in September 2006 and has made rapid progress to become a highly successful and over-subscribed local school. In its 2013 OFSTED inspection Burlington Danes was rated ‘Outstanding’ in every category.
The academy is expanding rapidly and we are seeking an enthusiastic Art Technician.
The Art Department currently teaches Fine Art, Graphic Design, Textiles and 3D Design to the Lower School and at GCSE, and a holistic Fine Art A-Level that is structured similarly to a foundation course. The department is well resourced, occupying 7 dedicated studios including an Apple Mac suite, a specialist Sixth Form Studio/Gallery Space and additionally a kiln room and workshop.
A new technician is required who will be responsible for:
- ordering and managing supplies and resources
- preparing example projects
- advising teaching staff on technical processes
- mentoring targeted students in art and working with small groups
- leading the curation, construction and hang of exhibitions
- Health and Safety compliance
- overall display across the Academy
The technician post is an exciting one since the successful applicant will work across the different disciplines and age groups and with a team of teachers, each with different specialisms. The role would suit a recent Art graduate and the long holidays leave plenty of time to develop your own practice with access to dedicated equipment such as the kiln, workshop and printing presses. This role will also be of interest to anyone considering a career in Art teaching.
Salary will be determined by experience, but is generous compared to many similar positions. The successful applicant will have access to extended Ark benefits as well as extensive CPD opportunities.
