The JCB Academy was established in September 2010, the first of a brand new kind of school in the UK, with a focus on delivering high-quality engineering and business education.
Since opening we have been consistently successful - our first Ofsted inspection, in May 2014, recognised us as a “Good” school with “outstanding” features, including progress in mathematics, engineering and vocational courses and the dedication to keeping students safe and secure. Pupil numbers are growing - we have been oversubscribed every year, including for entry this September. Currently we cater for approximately 580 full time students aged 14-18 as well as approximately 300 students aged 16+ following apprenticeships. We have exciting plans to expand further due to the demand for places.
We are looking for a dynamic and inspirational individual to deliver on a range of KS4 engineering and design and technology courses. We would be particularly interested in a candidate who has experience in working across a range of DT disciplines which may include Product Design, Resistant Materials and Engineering.
The successful individual will:
- Deliver an engaging engineering curriculum to KS4
- Benefit from working with small class sizes, outstanding engineering workshop facilities and cutting edge ICT.
- Have access to superb professional development and a competitive salary.
- Work in a supportive environment with professionals who are down-to-earth and committed to the aims of the academy.
We welcome applications from both experienced and newly qualified teachers (NQTs). We also have a strong track record of leadership development and succession planning for an ambitious candidate who is keen to progress to leadership in the future. This is a great opportunity to work in a unique environment with fantastic facilities. You must share our passion for developing engineers of the future.
