We are looking to appoint an innovative, passionate and creative Teacher of Art to join our successful forward-thinking Expressive Arts Faculty.    An ability to teach Art across Key Stages 3 – 5 would be desirable, but specifically to teach A Level (AQA) Photography, GCSE Fine Art (AQA) and KS3 Art.  A knowledge of Textiles at KS4 and 5 would be an advantage but not a necessity.

The establishment of DTSA has enhanced the quality of teaching and learning for our students and created opportunities for professional development for our staff, so that the opportunities for development and career progression within the organisation are superb.

We are delighted to be part of The Dartmoor Multi- Academy Trust (DMAT) which came into effect on 1st January 2018.  DMAT is a large MAT consisting of a total of 3 secondary schools and 13 primary schools and provides further opportunity for sharing good practice and resources and for staff development.

All schools in The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The successful candidate will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS).
