Teacher of Engineering and/or other Design & Technology Subject The Westwood Academy, Coventry, West Midlands

Job description

The Westwood Academy is a popular and progressive academy driving hard to move from good to outstanding. We require a permanent Teacher of Engineering or related Design & Technology subject, for example metalwork, woodwork or Graphic Design for example. You will work alongside with and support the Head of Faculty and assist pupils with a passion for engineering and Design and Technology to achieve their goals. Ideally we would like a January 2020 start date (or earlier) but would welcome applications from you for a later start date - we are looking for the right candidate and this is more important that immediate availability.
The Westwood Academy offers the best of all school environments. Our strengths include

• A small, community school which has a supportive, family feel and yet has the highest expectations of our wonderful staff and pupil team
• Exceptionally strong relationships between staff and pupils
• An excellent reputation in the local community

• An academic curriculum which continues to be enriched by sport, the creative arts and around 30 different clubs and societies
• Pupils who love to come to school and are proud of The Westwood Academy

In our most recent OfSTED inspection (October 2017) we were graded ‘good’ and our journey towards outstanding was noted. Recently, the governing bodies of The Westwood Academy and the prestigious Kenilworth School came together to form a Multi-Academy Trust (KMAT) and so you will be joining us at the start of this exciting journey. In addition, you will be joining a team made up of staff who have been working with us for 40 years through to new teachers to the profession. NQT’s are welcome to apply.
