Teacher of Product Design

September 2019


(TLR 2b available for a suitably qualified and experienced candidate)

Governors are seeking to appoint a teacher of Product Design on a permanent contract from September 1st 2019.   This is a teaching post however, for candidates wishing to progress this could be a great opportunity for someone with the right experience to lead Art & Design Technology.  If you are looking for that first rung on the ladder to leadership and you have experience as a successful teacher this could be an excellent opportunity.   The successful candidate must have experience of teaching product design.

Spen Valley High School is very proud to be local comprehensive school with a genuinely inclusive ethos. As part of the Spenborough Cooperative Trust it has a strong relationship with other local schools and good community links. 

We believe strongly in ethical leadership and whatever their barrier to learning we aim to support our students so they can remain in school, engaged in their learning and achieving well. We strive to ensure that all of our students can access a curriculum that is appropriate to their needs so that when they leave us they can stand shoulder to shoulder with any young person from any background.

This is an exciting time to join Spen Valley High School as we build upon our many strengths and develop a truly coherent provision for our students.  You will join our recently appointed Headteacher to work alongside a highly professional & dedicated team of staff who are welcoming, open-minded and supportive. It is a particularly exciting time to join the school as we are undertaking a whole school review of our curriculum to ensure our students will leave us and be able to ’stand shoulder to shoulder’ with any other young person, from any other background.

The successful candidate will be at the forefront of this transformational change and we are looking for someone who is creative, dynamic, and willing to embrace this challenge head on. 

We are looking for someone who has a good understanding of the challenges our young people face growing up in today’s world, yet is aspirational for them and will work hard so they can achieve their very best.  Someone who is committed, shows grit and resilience and will work hard for our students. Someone who enjoys working with young people and believes it is a privilege to be a teacher. Someone who can take the initiative but is also a real team player. 

Spen Valley High School is a very special school. We believe that our children deserve the very best from their teachers and we want all of our staff to feel the same. If you think we match your vision of what a school should be like we would be delighted to hear from you.

All employees are required to promote and actively support the Council’s responsibilities towards safeguarding.
