What skills and experience we're looking for
We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and experienced teacher and leader who will strive to make a positive difference to the lives of our students.
You will have the ambition and skills to achieve excellence in Design and Food Technology at both key stage 3 and key stage 4 and deliver challenging and inspiring lessons through excellent classroom management and an inspiring curriculum.
You will need to pursue excellence from our students and support them in accessing their full potential across the subject area, regardless of background.
You will have the necessary communication and management skills to lead a team effectively, drawing the best out of others as well as holding people to account for the quality of their planning, teaching, assessment and classroom culture.
You will by nature be both a servant and instructional leader – leading by example and being prepared to model and share your own highly effective practice before expecting others to do the same.
Positive relationships and a culture of high expectations of our students and ourselves are key aspects of our school culture and we are looking for people strongly aligned to our Christian values.
- Are you passionate about leading Design and Food Technology and improving the life chances of our students?
- Are you looking for the opportunity to lead your own Department and make your mark?
- Do you have experience of teaching the 9-1 GCSE AQA and WJEC specifications or are you willing to adapt to it?
- Do you have experience of delivering significant success at grades 9-7 at GCSE?
- Do you have exceptional classroom management skills?
- Can you motivate, inspire and enthuse students?
- Are you able to embrace our strong Christian ethos?
