Design Technology Teacher

Blackheath High SchoolGreenwich

Due to the retirement of a long-standing member of staff within the department, we are now looking to appoint a passionate, part-time teacher of Design Technology.

Students attain excellent examination results and Design Technology is a popular subject. You would be working alongside a very enthusiastic and dynamic Head of Design and very talented technician in a forward-thinking department.

The successful candidate will demonstrate equal passion for their subject and working with young students. This role would suit a well-qualified individual, wishing to make a significant impact on the success of the school and to enhance the girls' education, through both curricular and co-curricular activities. The ability to teach Key Stage 3 Art would be an advantage.
