What skills and experience we're looking for

A very rare vacancy for a Teacher of Design and Technology has arisen at Cardinal Griffin Catholic College to join us after Easter 2023.

The Governors of the College are seeking an exceptional and outstanding teacher of Design and Technology to work within our DTACS team. The right candidate will be ambitious, positive, highly professional and absolutely committed to ensuring that students achieve great outcomes and enjoy Design and Technology.

It is important that the successful candidate is a good fit in our team of staff, and so they may be highly experienced or just starting out on their teaching journey, what matters to us is their passion for teaching, strength as a classroom practitioner and love of their subject area.

ECTs who can demonstrate the potential to be outstanding teachers are encouraged to apply.

The College encourages applications from those of the Catholic faith, but it is not a barrier to appointment if candidates do not have that faith background provided they support the ethos of the College. We are extremely proud of our ethos which comes in very large part from our Jesuit Associate School membership and Catholic Diocesan heritage. This teaches us to be grateful for the gift of teaching that we have and to be generous in using it for the good of our pupils.

What the school offers its staff

In return candidates can expect:

  • Supportive and hardworking colleagues committed to going the extra mile for pupils
  • Training, development and support appropriate to their career stage
  • To be part of a College with a strong Catholic ethos and well-behaved pupils
  • Support for both new teachers and those at different career stages is excellent as are opportunities to grow develop and progress

Further details about the role

Closing date for applications is 12 noon, 30th January 2023; although the College reserves the right to interview as soon as it has a suitable field of candidates and so encourages early applications.

We do not accept applications via CV or from recruitment agencies.

We welcome further discussions about the post and these can be conducted using a variety of online platforms or by telephone. Please contact us to discuss this if it will be helpful to you.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This position is subject to a criminal records check, the Disclosure and Barring Service will require you to disclose details of all unspent and unfiltered spent reprimands, formal warnings cautions and convictions in your application form.
