Textiles Teacher

Northwood CollegeHillingdon

Northwood College is looking for a Textiles Teacher to join our leading academic day school and to be part of an exceptionally creative, warm and supportive community.  

We are looking for candidates who can teach Art and Design Textiles up to A level. 

The successful candidate will be a team player, committed and passionate about Textiles and the education of the girls in their care and will have the drive and motivation to go above and beyond.  

The Department:

The Textiles Department has two full timers including the Head of Department and one-part timer and a textiles technician. The Textile rooms are vibrant and inspiring learning environments, fully equipped and recently fitted out with tailor made work stations. 

In Textiles, pupils develop creative and practical techniques and technical knowledge, preparing them to participate in a world of rapidly changing creative arts and technologies. They learn to be creative and imaginative in solving problems, developing invaluable life skills. Textiles is incredibly popular at both GCSE with two groups in Year 10 and three groups in Year 11 this year. At both GCSE and A level we follow the Art and Design: Textile Design AQA Examination Board. Year on year grades have been outstanding in this subject. Girls have also been very successful at A level, gaining prestigious places to study Fashion at Central St Martins and The London College of Fashion.

About the School:

Northwood College for Girls is an independent, academically selective day school for approximately 860 girls aged 3-18. At NWC, we value character and academic rigour equally. Our curriculum ignites intellectual curiosity and fosters emotional intelligence, building resilience through challenge. An NWC education enables every girl to lead a purposeful life and feel successful in their learning. 

Both pupils and staff are encouraged to find and develop their passions and talents, through clubs, societies and an extensive programme of CPD. All members of the NWC community are expected to act with compassion and integrity, with respect for others and the environment and an awareness of global responsibility.  

Everyone is equally valued in our NWC family and our dynamic young women are proud of their school. Looking after one another and rejoicing in one another’s successes comes second nature to a NWC girl as does her ‘can-do’ attitude and drive. 

NWC is at an exhilarating moment in its evolution, with a dynamic and ambitious Senior Leadership Team and a suite of school site developments (including a Sixth Form Centre and STEAM Building) in progress.  The successful candidate will be similarly ambitious for the school and ready to make an impact in our vibrant learning community.
