An exciting opportunity has arisen for an ambitious, dynamic and inspirational teacher of Technology to join Sandbach High School & Sixth Form College as Curriculum Leader of Design & Technology. We are looking for a well-qualified graduate with high expectations to lead a dynamic team.
This 11-18 school is a high achieving comprehensive academy which has been judged as Outstanding in three successive inspections. Pupils in both the all-girls main school and the large Sixth Form, which also admits boys, make significant progress during their time here. The new Curriculum Leader will be an outstanding teacher who is able to motivate and inspire students of all abilities.
The Design & Technology Curriculum Area offers Food Technology, Textiles, Graphics, Engineering and Product Design across all key stages and Hospitality & Catering at KS4 and KS5. This post offers flexibility for teaching Textiles and/or Food Technology/Hospitality across all key stages, including A Level or BTEC, for a suitably qualified and experienced teacher.
For candidates with a background in Textiles, talent, skill and experience in design and construction would be essential. For those whose strength is Food, a good understanding of both food preparation and cooking along with food and drink service would be an advantage. We have a purpose built commercial restaurant, open to the public once a fortnight, where catering students under teacher supervision have the opportunity to gain real life experience of the industry.
All candidates would need the flexibility to teach other material areas within Design & Technology at KS3.
There is a strong ethos of teamwork, sharing of good practice and a commitment to providing the best opportunities to ensure the success of our students at all levels across the school. To be successful, you must be a highly self-motivated, talented and dedicated teacher with the ability to lead, manage and inspire a successful Design & Technology Curriculum Area.
