Teacher of Design & Technology job summary

QEGSMAT are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Design & Technology to join our hardworking team at the City of Derby Academy (CODA). 

The Design & Innovation faculty delivers a range of Level 1 and 2 technical and vocational subjects with a high uptake at Key Stage 4, providing our students with meaningful career pathways linked to the local labour market. The department has state of the art resources including 3 ICT suites, 3D printers, a large format laser cutter, and CNC routers/lathes/mills. Subjects taught at Key Stage 4 include Design & Technology, Food & Cookery, Creative iMedia, Textiles, Business Studies, Engineering and Construction. 

We serve a very diverse community with over 30 home languages. The school’s vision is “improving the life chances of all students”. Moreover, we continually strive to develop our students’ character through our core values of Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Achieve, which underpin everything we do, every day. 

Our most recent Ofsted inspection (March 2024) recognised our strengths and sustained journey of improvement, our caring ethos, and the strong relationships that exist between our respectful, polite and loyal students and our staff (who overwhelmingly enjoy working at CODA and whose well-being and workload are prioritised by leaders).

City of Derby Academy is a proud member of QEGSMAT. The Trust’s values are for students to ‘Question, Explore; Give; and Succeed’. Our exceptional staff, strong leadership, motivated children, as well as excellent facilities, provide the successful formula for this.

At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every pupil to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.

Why work for us?

  • At QEGSMAT, we value the hard work and dedication of our team members, and as such we believe that progression should be a simple process. That’s why we are proud to offer an Automatic Pay Review program, rather than the traditional annual pay and performance review, as part of our comprehensive benefits package.
  • Continual access to CPD opportunities. QEGSMAT works with a large number of organisations to develop staff to fulfil their aspirations and potential. We are committed to providing first-rate training and development to all our staff within this evolving Trust.
  • We are committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination, and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
  • All staff have access to our Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential, independent and unbiased information and guidance 24/7. This can also include bespoke counselling sessions for staff if needed.
  • All roles are subject to nationally agreed terms and conditions of service.
  • With access to the Teacher Pension Scheme employer contributions of 28.68% for Teachers
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Access to Flu Vaccines.
  • Opportunity to work flexibly.
