Teacher of Technology job summary

To support our growing and expanding school, we are seeking applications from a dedicated, hardworking, highly skilled and knowledgeable teacher to join our Technology department, within a highly successful, happy, well-resourced, exceptional non-selective 11-18 school.

We work meticulously to secure a culture of unapologetically high expectations that are underpinned by our collective, uncompromising belief and ambition for the students of Beacon Academy, and for the experienced, loyal, highly-skilled and highly-effective team of staff that teach them, allowing teachers to teach and students to learn in a school where leadership, management, behaviour and welfare are all judged as outstanding. The Academy is committed to the development of both its staff and students.

Beacon Academy takes a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession. We invest in our teachers through our Early Career Teacher (ECT) programme and have chosen to partner with UCL and Sussex Schools Alliance for the delivery of the Early Career Framework and with Brighton & Hove Education & Enterprise Marketplace as our Appropriate Body. High quality professional development is a priority, and we have seven Specialist Leaders of Education across a variety of areas on our staff body.

In 2019, Beacon Partnership was selected by the Chartered College, the professional body for teaching, to deliver the prestigious Chartered Teacher (CTeach) Programme in East and West Sussex, Kent and Brighton and Hove. We are currently supporting several staff on the Chartered College of Teaching Certificate of Evidence Informed Practice and NPQs from UCL Institute of Education in partnership with Sussex Coast Schools Alliance.

We secure excellent outcomes for our students. In 2019 our Progress 8 score was 0.97. As a non-selective, non-denominational, non-fee-paying school, we are immensely proud and delighted to have received this confirmation, once again, of our high-ranking position. We are in an esteemed group of 6% of schools nationally who are now categorised as ‘well above average’ for two years in a row. There are approximately 25 schools nationally who have been above us for each of the last three years (0.7% of all schools). As ever, this is a reflection of our vision and our determination to consistently provide the best possible education for all of our students, and to become an exceptional school for our community, both locally and nationally.
