We are looking for an excellent teacher of Technology who can teach Technology across all areas of the curriculum, with a specialism in Food Technology and/or Product/3D Design. 

We are developing our curriculum with ambitious aims. This will secure, in the long-term, rich subject knowledge for all students and move beyond simple manifestations of a ‘knowledge-rich curriculum’.  Our curriculum is shaped by this academic discipline within the Technology department.

You will need to be passionate about your subject, bring fresh ideas and work hard in a committed team to ensure all students reach their full potential through the delivery of a knowledge-rich curriculum. 

To excel in this role, the ideal candidate will:

  • Be an inspirational teacher with a proven track record of success at teaching Technology to Key Stage 3 across all Technology disciplines and to Key Stages 4 and 5 in your specialism.
  • Embrace the current changes to the curriculum and drive up progress and outcomes.
  • Have the ability to inspire, engage and enthuse students, staff and the wider community.
  • Have a professional drive, energy, determination and aspiration.
  • Collaborate and work with all staff across school to support further school improvement.

In return, we can offer you:

  • A talented and committed staff team who are supportive of each other. This includes framework for staff voice and a fair workload charter to ensure wellbeing and a good work/life balance. 
  • A Headteacher, Leadership Team and Governing Body committed to creating a school of outstanding practice.
  • The opportunity to grow in your teaching practice and work with young people in a truly comprehensive, multi-cultural community environment.
  • Excellent professional development opportunities, including a subject-specific CPD model which focuses on subject knowledge.
  • Fantastic buildings, resources and facilities.

If you share our values, ambition, have a proven track record of success and relish a new challenge, we look forward to receiving your application. Applications are invited from experienced teachers and those seeking their first appointment.
