What skills and experience we're looking for
We are looking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious teacher of DT who can inspire and motivate our students and join us on our continuous journey towards excellence by raising standards, improving outcomes for all learners and deliver the TDA core purpose:
“To ensure that each student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills and character to make a positive contribution to society and ‘thrive’ as a global citizen.”
We are seeking a highly motivated teacher of DT who will work within the team and the extended ADIT department and expand on the work done by the previous staff member in revitalising the subject. At present, we have 2 groups at year 11 and 2 at year 10, with 9 groups for DT in year 9 as well as all of year 9 partaking in Food Preparation and Nutrition and a growing group who wish to partake in extracurricular activities.
At the moment, we follow the AQA syllabus at GCSE and are looking to restart the subject at A Level and this will be in discussion with the Subject Lead for Design Technology.
What the school offers its staff
The Academy has a great history of success and a bright and exciting future. We are looking to employ an ambitious, dynamic teacher to enhance our subject team. If you are interested then please download our Job Description for more information about the role, the department and instructions on how to apply.
The Thomas Deacon Academy that we know today opened in 2007 as one of the UK’s first and largest academies. Whilst a building does not make a school, it is worth noting that Thomas Deacon Academy was designed by Norman Foster and Partners and in addition to our impressive main academy our beautiful 43-acre campus includes TDA Juniors - a modern, light, and purpose-built Key Stage 2 facility - and expansive playing fields and sporting facilities.
Moving forward, our vision for the academy is a simple one: we want every member of our learning community to be the very best that they can be and achieve their full potential.
The academy’s core values of Trust, Discipline and Aspiration define who we are as a community and how we learn together. We believe that every member of our learning community should have the highest expectations and standards, showing trust and discipline in all that we do.
In September 2018, a new extension to the existing main building led to new accommodation being created for a sixth form study centre, refectory expansion and staff professional learning centre.
In September 2019, TDA received a very positive Ofsted report, judging the academy to be Good overall. Ofsted commented favourably, amongst other things, on the overall leadership of the academy, good teaching, positive relationships between staff and students and students’ behaviour. These aspects of the academy have been maintained alongside the identified areas for development being addressed.
