Teacher of Design and Technology

The Orme AcademyStaffordshire

The Orme Academy is seeking to appoint an inspirational and innovative thinker to our Design and Technology department. The successful candidate will have an absolute commitment to raising standards of achievement, developing strong progression in students’ learning and a desire to support the young people in all areas of their education. We welcome applicants that have the ability to teach Design and Technology across KS3 and KS4. This post would suit an experienced teacher or an NQT. All students at KS3 study a range of Design and Technology disciplines, including Food Technology. At KS4, students have varied options in the department as we currently offer GCSE Design and Technology, Vocational Award in Construction, GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition, as well as CamNat in Health and Social Care. This is an exciting opportunity as we expand our provision in Design and Technology. 


The sole ethos for the school community is ‘Empowering Learners for Life’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring the Academy is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Orme Academy is a great place to learn and a great place to work.


This ethos applies equally to the staff. We believe in empowering our staff to be aspirational and effective leaders of learning and provide a good programme of CPD and induction to support those joining our vibrant community.  This CPD includes being part of a large MAT, with its own Institute of Education (IoE) focused on the development of staff. The IoE provides access to wide range of network hubs, subject experts and access to best practice, as well as bespoke CPD opportunities. This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly professional and committed team of staff whilst also playing their part in the success and future development of our Academy. 


Further information about the Academy can be found by visiting the website www.theormeacademy.org.uk. If you would like to discuss the opportunity further, then please contact Gail Willis (PA to the Principal) (gwillis@toa.shaw-education.org.uk).
