Job summary

We are seeking to appoint a dedicated and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about teaching technology. We are looking for someone who has the ability to lead the Technology Faculty, ensuring high attainment and outstanding teaching and learning at all key stages. Our ideal candidate will be an experienced, outstanding practitioner with a proven track record of developing and implementing effective strategies for raising attainment in technology to secure the best possible outcomes for students.

“Person fit” is essential to our thriving, driven team of middle leaders, hence the opportunity for the appointment brief to best fit your skills and experience.

The successful applicant will be a strong team player committed to the Academy’s vision “A community that believes in top class teaching and a pastoral care system that is second to none ensures that we prepare our young people for a bright and optimistic future, filled with opportunity”.

We have very high expectations of all staff and for the right person this is a superb opportunity to further develop leadership skills through bespoke CPD provision across the trust. You will be working in a modern, well-resourced, supportive environment, which has excellent facilities.

Our last Ofsted inspection (December 2018) judged three criteria as ‘Good’ – effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare. Inspectors highlighted the vastly improved leadership and high ambitions, which has helped to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ behaviour.

Kirkby High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and adheres to the Equality Act 2010. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment; any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure. To comply with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 all prospective employees will be required to supply evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
