What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Technology who is looking for a new challenge and is willing to join an innovative and forward-thinking department. The ideal candidate must have a real passion for their subject and be equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Technology is currently taught once a week at Kingsway Park High School at Key Stage 3 and by Year 9 offers several distinct pathways at GCSE including 3D Design, Graphics, Engineering, Food Science and Nutrition and Construction. All of these options are becoming increasingly popular with our students, and we are looking for someone with the drive and passion to continue to increase the subject popularity through the delivery of quality lessons, production of engaging resources and extensive use of their own subject knowledge. The ideal candidate will be expected to deliver predominantly a range of technology subjects at KS3 including Food science and nutrition, Design technology and ICT. You will also be expected to deliver KS4 lessons in your chosen specialism. This is an exciting time to contribute to the remapping of the technology curriculum and to align the curriculum intent with the school’s new mission statement- ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’

The History department at Kingsway Park High School is a supportive department that is well resourced with four specified classrooms. There is a work area for staff within the department which allows the team to work cohesively to support each other. The successful candidate will be supported by their curriculum leader and will work alongside experienced and motivated staff. Planning is shared across the department, and applicants should be confident in planning schemes of work. The ideal candidate would engage students both in lessons and with extra-curricular support.
