What skills and experience we're looking for

The Cowplain School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and passionate teacher of Design Technology. With the reforms of GCSEs, we adapted our technology offer from solely D&T to one specialising in Food and Nutrition and Engineering. Our KS4 Engineering course is very popular with 50-60 students selecting it from Year 9. You would also teach D&T to KS3 students, which focuses on a range of projects which reflect the specialisms of Engineering, Textiles, Graphics and Food.

We are extremely ambitious for our 997 students and have a strong vision to ensure that the life-chances of every young person are enhanced by quality teaching, leading to excellent outcomes. Having secured a ‘Good’ OFSTED in July 2018 we are now looking for staff who can take us to ‘Outstanding.’ Therefore, it is vital that you have the skills to form effective relationships with students, parents and colleagues and have the passion and drive to ensure our students receive the best possible learning opportunities.

What the school offers its staff

As a teacher at Cowplain we would invest in you to ensure that you develop the skills and expertise needed to ensure those that you teach acquire skills vital to their future. We have a fully equipped workshop for small engineering projects, as well as a main teaching room with sufficient IT provision for a class to work on CAD software, equipped with projector and screen, and every teacher receives a laptop. We offer all members of staff a full induction programme and significant opportunities to develop their expertise. Colleagues at the school work together to support each other and we have an active wellbeing committee.
