STEM Technician job summary

Ark St Alban’s Academy is seeking to appoint a skilled and enthusiastic teacher to lead our work to further raise achievement in science.

Our school is committed to addressing educational disadvantage. We consistently guide pupils to GCSE and A-Level outcomes which place our cohorts in the top 10% of schools nationally on many measures, including those for the progress of disadvantaged pupils. Our school serves pupils from central Birmingham. The percentage of our cohort eligible for the Pupil Premium is the eighth highest in the country. There are very few communities in the UK who need great teachers more than ours. Teachers and leaders at Ark St Alban’s Academy are determined to prove that the background of a young person can be no impediment to their success. Our school prepares pupils to succeed at elite universities, with our alumni proudly representing our community at prestigious destinations including Cambridge University, Durham University and the London School of Economics.

Our school consistently secures excellent outcomes for our pupils.

Our pupils are passionate about STEM subjects. The number of pupils pursuing sciences and maths in our sixth form continues to grow each year, both in the pursuit of A-Levels and vocational courses. Our school also has a strong track record in both art and design with pupils increasingly confident in exploring and developing their design technology and artistic skills.

Providing all pupils with an academic and rigorous science education is central to our university preparatory curriculum.

In this role, the successful candidate will work directly with curriculum leaders across multiple subjects to aid the preparation and delivery for high quality teaching and learning for pupils in all key stages.
