What skills and experience we're looking for

We are proud that Outwood Grange Academy is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we are delighted to be based in the city of Wakefield. We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Design Technology department is situated in 9 purpose rooms including 3 workshops, 2 fully equipped Food Technology and 2 fully equipped Textiles rooms and 2 CAD/CAM suites. The department encompasses a wide range of disciplines at KS3 including Product Design, Textiles, Engineering and Food Technology. Design and Technology aims to support our students in becoming independent, confident, creative and resilient learners. We do this partly through a new and innovative curriculum model where at its heart we strive to fuel curiosity, creativity and the capacity to solve complex problems. At KS4 we currently offer progression to three popular courses Product Design, Textiles or Hospitality and Catering. At KS5 we currently run Product Design, however, with the increasing popularity of DT at KS4 we are currently looking to introduce new courses in the near future to supplement our KS5 curriculum. All specialisms will be considered, however, the ability to teach across multiple disciplines at KS3 and Product Design at KS4 would be desirable.

Our vision is to always put students first in order to raise standards and transform lives. To make this happen, we innovate constantly, including a curriculum that is designed to enable personalised learning in depth and with breadth. We ensure that additional teaching time and resources are provided to support students to leave with a solid foundation of good and better grades.

With a holistic view of education, we value vocational, practical, creative and academic talent equally and focus on building transferable skills that result in real-world success.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Technology teacher to make a significant contribution to ongoing development of the curriculum and department. You should possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference and have a firm love of your subject and a desire to support our young people to reach their full potential.

Please contact John Fretwell Head of Technology by email to j.fretwell@grange.outwood.com for an informal discussion or to arrange a visit to the academy.
