Teacher of Music Production, Sound Technology and Music

Elstree Screen Arts AcademyHertfordshire

We are looking to hire a highly driven and passionate Teacher of Music Production, Sound Technology and Music who can model exceptional teaching practice and engage students to achieve beyond their potential.

Elstree Screen Arts Academy (formerly EUTC) opened in September 2013 and offers a unique education for students aged 14 to 19 specialising in the crafts, arts, trades and technical disciplines behind the scenes of film, TV and theatre industries. We provide core academic education alongside technical and applied courses designed to develop learners to be creative, innovative and reflective. We are also here to provide them with the necessary knowledge, skills and opportunities to be employed in the creative industries where there is currently a substantial skills shortage.

This is a creative college full of vitality and ambition. Our students are a credit to us and our campus is new and well resourced. Our staff are passionate and industry credible. ESA benefits from leading academic and industry partners and this year ScreenSkills and the BFI designated ESA as a UK Centre of Screen Excellence for its delivery of 'ScreenCraft' - a specialist and inclusive traineeship for young people hoping to work in the film and TV industry.

As a new college, we are still expanding and developing our curriculum. We currently have around 400 students on our roll.

This position provides a real opportunity for a proactive and inspiring Teacher of Music Production, Sound Technology and Music who can keep pace with our Performing and Production Arts departments at this innovative college.  Thank you again for your interest in being a part of the teaching team at ESA and working with the creative, curious learners we work for.

We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date should we receive suitable applications.

We offer:

  • Peninsula HR advice and support

  • Complimentary access to the Elstree Studios bar 'Rushes'
  • Access to high end professional equipment and facilities
    Book out the studio spaces (recording studio and drama stage) when coursework, exams or students aren't occupying them. Loan Canon DSLR equipment and small lighting kits.

    If you find you want to invest yourself in more extended curriculum activities at ESA, support one of our projects by leading, mentoring or accompanying students working on an ESA Productions brief. Quite often these are film or design focused, but in the past have included musical events, charity campaigns, social media projects and drama performances.
  • Opportunities for career progression
    We are a young organisation with plenty of room for expansion. Every year we are diversifying and fine tuning our offer, so come and make your mark! Help mould the creative arts curriculum at ESA.
