Teacher of Design & Technology Axe Valley Academy, Axminster, Devon

Job description

We are looking for a brilliant and dynamic Design & Technology teacher who is passionate about their subject and able to lead by example and inspire others.

Uffculme Academy Trust is delighted to be in a position to offer this exciting post to an enthusiastic and committed teacher of Design and Technology at our East Devon Academy: Axe Valley. This is a particularly exciting period in our development as we develop our partnership with Uffculme Academy Trust. The Multi -Academy Trust currently includes Uffculme School, one of the most successful schools in the country and Uffculme Primary School as well as a teaching school (WCTSA) and from September, we will be in the enviable position of working in a highly successful family of schools providing education from 4-19 with exceptional opportunities for career progression.

Axe Valley currently has approximately 600 students in Years 7–11. The Academy is located in the East Devon area of the country, in the beautiful market town of Axminster, which is set on the River Axe. Axminster is just a few miles inland from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site but has excellent rail links to London and Exeter.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to work with a new Head of Design & Technology to develop the department in an exciting and innovative way to best meet the needs of our students. We have no pre-conceived idea about how DT will look at Axe Valley in the future but we are totally committed to the subject as we feel it needs to play an integral part in our curriculum offer.

If you feel you have the skills and determination to make a difference and to help and transform the lives of young people we would love to hear from you.

The position is required for January 2020 or earlier if available.

Visits to the Academy are welcomed. Please contact Mrs Ford, Headteacher’s PA on 01297 32146 if you wish to arrange a visit or discuss the position further.
