Humberston Academy is now recruiting for a Design & Technology Teacher. This exciting opportunity could be the ideal for a newly qualified teacher or the next step in your career.
If you are ambitious, inspirational, creative, open-minded and want to be part of a department that consistently achieves academic outcomes in the top 10% nationally, then we want to hear from you.
The Design and Technology department has two mixed material workshops, equipped with a range of wood and metal working facilities, a dedicated computer room fully equipped with 2D/3D CAD software and an A2 laser cutter. It also has a second dedicated general-purpose classroom/design space.
At Humberston Academy we are passionate about providing a traditional curriculum which not only develops life skills but prepares each student for adulthood and a successful career.
Students in the academy show a real enthusiasm for their Design & Technology and are acutely aware of the link between the subject and the world of work, particularly in the industries within the local area. As a result of this the subject has a very good uptake at KS4. We are therefore looking for a highly skilled, creative and enthusiastic resistant materials specialist who can deliver Design & Technology up to KS4 and to be part of our team here at Humberston Academy.
