Teacher of Technology
We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Technology to join our school.
Required September 2017
Lea Manor High School is an 11 - 16 mixed comprehensive in Luton. Our recent Ofsted in December, 2013, stated: 'Classrooms are often vibrant and stimulating environments, for example the music and drama rooms. This helps students become interested in the lessons.' 'Students behave consistently well in class. They enjoy their lessons and find the work interesting. They participate with enthusiasm in discussions. In group activities, students work positively with all their classmates, not just their best friends.'
We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Technology to join our school. This course encourage students to be able to design and make products using a range of materials and techniques. Students will work independently on a range of practical activities at the start of the course and throughout key stage three designed to develop relevant skills required in the design and make process.
A working knowledge of woods, metals, plastics and composite materials are developed during the course, but other materials may be used in addition. The use of new technologies is encouraged in this course as they link directly with Engineering and other appropriate sectors. This course is designed to foster awareness amongst students, of the need to consider sustainability and environmental impact of their designing.
Recently refurbished, our classrooms are colourful, innovative and have the latest ICT equipment. A state of the art theatre gives us the opportunity to develop confident young people who engage in their lessons, look to learn more and have clear aspirations. We put learning at the centre of what we do and our expectations are very high. Our facilities allow us to offer a subsidised gym with a swimming pool, laptops for all staff and regular specialist CPD.
This is an ideal opportunity for an NQT or an experienced teacher seeking a new challenge.
Lea Manor High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
