What skills and experience we're looking for

Crestwood Community School is one school, with two campuses serving central Eastleigh. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and ambitious person as an Assistant Faculty Lead, teaching Design and Technology, to start in September 2023. Design & Technology sits within the Technology Faculty. The Faculty pride themselves on having an innovative and forward thinking curriculum. Practical work is at the heart of everything and the Faculty’s vision centres on giving students the skills and experiences they need so that they can be successful in the wider world beyond school.

At Crestwood within KS3 Design and Technology we currently offer a range of specialisms such as Textiles, Electronics, Product design, Graphics and Food. At KS4 we offer both a GCSE in Design and Technology and Food, Preparation and Nutrition. However, as an innovative and forward thinking team, we are always looking to develop new areas within the subject and at Key Stage 3 are always developing new projects. We are seeking a Design and Technology specialist that can teach KS3 and KS4 across the range of disciplines.

The Faculty is incredibly well resourced across both campuses with specialist rooms for each subject area and up-to-date equipment, which is well managed and maintained by our own in-house technicians. Our IT resources are also excellent, with access to IT suites, Chromebooks and specialist design software as needed.

We are looking for someone who can play an active role in contributing to the already high standards within the team. Food and nutrition results are consistently strong and the course has a high uptake. You will be supported by a passionate and hands-on faculty leadership team; as well as experienced and dedicated teachers within that team.
