We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious Design and Technology teacher to inspire and educate our students in the fascinating world of design, engineering, and technology. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in a supportive and collaborative environment, fostering a love for creativity and innovation in our students.

- enthuse and motivate all students

- demonstrate incredibly high expectations

- believe that all students are capable of success.

- Be experienced in delivering the Design & Technology GCSE course
