If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us

Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in Hackney and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. In 2015 and 2016 students made exceptional progress with a Progress 8 score above 1.00, one of only seven schools in the country to achieve this. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

The Role

We are looking for a highly motivated, exceptional individual to take on the role of Creative Faculty Art Technician. You will be working with excellent staff in this exciting and challenging post. 

Duties will include:

  • ensuring a safe and effective technical service is provided for the use of students and staff;
  • providing technical advice and assistance in the class room to support students and assist teaching staff with learning activities;
  • work in the Arts faculty to support work being done both as part of the normal curriculum and the activities generated by the academy’s Creative Faculty departments. 

The ideal candidate will be extremely well organised, resourceful, adaptable, flexible and innovative in demanding and difficult situations. Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to interact easily and comfortably in any environment are essential to the post. 

In addition, the Creative Arts Technician will be expected to fulfil the role of Student Personal Adviser and/or mentor if required, and to contribute to the maintenance of a caring and stimulating environment for young people.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in Hackney. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community we serve, then we would like to hear from you.
