Design Technology Teacher
Tradewind are recruiting! Are you a creative and passionate Design Technology Teacher, looking for a new opportunity in a small community school in Tameside?
Tradewind Recruitment is currently looking for an enthusiastic and innovative Design Technology Teacher, to join a smaller than average secondary school, to start in May 2018. This is a full time, long term role, paying up to £150 a day.
We are recruiting on behalf of a small and well-established community school, which caters for students from 11 -16 years old. The school has recently partnered with a second school in the area, after being graded 'Good' with 'Outstanding' leadership; this was achieved through the SLT being extremely supportive of all staff members. They pride themselves on an induction programme leading to excellent professional development opportunities and are fully committed to the progress of their staff, as well as their students.
This OFSTED 'Good' secondary academy is looking for a Design Technology Teacher who can deliver lessons across all Key Stages and has excellent subject knowledge, as well as a great personality for building rapport with staff and students alike. You must be a committed practitioner, who will want to attain the highest standards in teaching and learning throughout the role. You will need to be a collaborative and driven individual who will support and lead on the delivery of the subject through inventive approaches including curriculum design and the use of ICT.
The role itself will involve the delivery of Design Technology lessons to students in KS3 and KS4, where you will mainly be covering the subject area of Resistant Materials and Food Technology. You will be delivering a full timetable, with PPA time for planning and marking. Ideal candidates will have strong curriculum knowledge and will ensure that the lessons they deliver are of excellent quality using innovative and engaging approaches, ensuring that the students are having fun whilst making progress!
The school is based in rural Tameside, with excellent public transport links and ample parking available.
After visiting this school, I was incredibly impressed by the welcoming and inclusive feeling that is present throughout the corridors. The school has beautiful views of the Peak District.
