Teacher of Design and Technology and Art
Permanent Part-time from September 2019 - (MPS/UPS)
Hardenhuish School is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school set in the magnificent parkland of the former Hardenhuish Manor and Chippenham Grammar School. We enjoy an outstanding reputation locally and nationally as a ‘High Performing Academy’. Exam results are consistently above the national average. At Hardenhuish we put children at the center of all we do: we believe in a three way partnership with school, home and the individual, ensuring that each and every young person is ‘inspired to learn, supported to succeed’.
We wish to appoint a highly motivated and enthusiastic teacher to join our vibrant team of talented colleagues. The department aims to ensure that pupils find the study of design and technology and art relevant, challenging and enjoyable. The programmes of study are designed to encourage individual initiative and foster independence whilst nurturing creativity and the acquisition of skills. We welcome applications from candidates able to teach any specialism within Design & Technology and / or Art. The ability to teach Food Technology at KS3, GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition and Hospitality and Catering Level 1 / 2 would be an advantage but not essential.
You would be working in our modern, purpose-built art and technology centre. Hardenhuish provides a supportive environment, where every member of staff is helped to be the very best they can be. You would have the advantage of outstanding CPD provision, if appropriate an established and successful NQT programme, potential for in-house career progression opportunities, regular staff-wellbeing events and access to a generous benefit package through Wiltshire Rewards.
This position will be on a permanent part-time contract basis broadly within the range of 0.3-0.5. There may be scope for more hours if the successful candidate is able to teach other subjects. Applications from experienced teachers or NQTs are warmly welcomed.
