What skills and experience we're looking for

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Design and Technology Teacher. We are looking for a passionate individual to work as part of our friendly, dedicated Design and Technology department, to further enhance the support and guidance offered to our young people. If successful, you would facilitate and encourage learning which enables student to achieve high standards: to share and support the corporate responsibility for the well-being, education and discipline of all students.

What the school offers its staff

  • Trust our staff to plan, prepare and assess at the best time for them, allowing them to go off-site in their PPA
  • Have centralised our Behaviour Policy so teachers are freed up from supervising detentions
  • Demand ethical leadership built on professional trust
  • Reject fads and ensure our CPD is evidence-informed and predominantly subject-specific
  • Have reduced data collections to twice yearly
  • Do not expect staff to respond to emails outside normal working hours
  • Do not deploy staff at other Trust schools unless it is at their request

Further details about the role

As a school, we are dedicated to providing a great teacher in every classroom and are committed to high-quality, collective teacher development. This helps us to reduce the replication of effort and helps all teachers to thrive in our setting. We do this by prioritising the continuing development of our staff. This comes in a variety of forms: professional subject-specific development delivered in department time; INSET days as well as through CPD opportunities across The Education Alliance.

Within The Education Alliance Multi Academy Trust, there are lots of opportunities for collaboration and also further opportunities to develop and progress. As a trust, we are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives. For too long in many schools, staff have been asked to choose between being seen as good at their job and being a good mum, dad, partner, son, daughter or friend. We are doing everything we can to support our staff to balance the demands of their jobs and those at home.

Above all, we recognise that seeking to remove the number of tasks staff undertake will have little effect on improving work/home balance if this happens within a toxic culture. To support this, we offer training for our leaders to ensure they are able to translate our values into behaviours which are built on the principles of dignity, respect, professionalism and integrity.
