The current teacher is also our Subject Leader for Careers, and there is the opportunity to apply for this post too (although applications may be submitted for the D&T role as a stand-alone).

When you apply, please make it clear in your personal statement whether you are applying for the teaching vacancy alone, or together with the Careers TLR.
