Tamworth Enterprise College (TEC) based in Staffordshire, is a forward thinking and established community driven school that is within easy commuting distance of Birmingham and Derby. We are proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust network of schools and serve the communities within Tamworth.

As a school we have been on a trajectory of improvement over the last 3 years and we are delighted to have secured the best GCSE results in our history in 2016. Our students are at the heart of everything we do, and we secured a ‘good’ judgement from Ofsted in 2016 for personal development, behaviour and welfare.

This is initially a fixed term contract until 31 August 2018. As the post is to start as soon as possible early application is advised.

  • The CPD at TEC is excellent, there is a wide range of personalised opportunities to develop your practice and further develop your career. As a team we support and challenge each other through meetings, peer observation, mentoring and team planning. 
  • Opportunities to join a career development programme in line with your professional development – ie Ambition School Leadership, SSAT, NLE.
  • As a team we pride ourselves on our team spirit, we regularly share good practice and collaboratively plan lessons. 

We are looking for a Teacher of Design Technology who really cares about helping our students succeed and who:

  • Is passionate about DT and has a creative and flexible approach to teaching both at KS3 and KS4.
  • Can teach Food Technology and/or construction up to KS4.
