Unqualified Teacher of Design Technology

Required: September 2023

Fixed Term Contract with potential for permanent employment

Salary: Unqualified Teacher Scale

Join East Anglia’s “State Secondary School of the Year” 2020

Due to the continued expansion of the College, including our outstanding sixth form, we are looking to recruit a passionate and exceptional unqualified Teacher of Design Technology, to train with us as part of the CTSN SCITT programme. We are looking for a candidate who is keen to train to teach both DT and Food up to KS5, and who will contribute to the full life of the College.

For teaching staff joining IVC, we can offer:

  • A reduced teaching load for all staff (maximum 40 hours per fortnight, the equivalent of at least one free period every day). This will be pro-rated for trainee teachers, with a maximum of 0.2 timetabled lessons.
  • One hour a week of subject CPD timetabled into the College day as part of your timetabled allocation, reducing twilight sessions to a minimum and ensuring regular access to outstanding professional development
  • A minimum of one paid ‘family day’ per year to use as you choose, with the possibility of term time leave by negotiation
  • £1000 bursary for personal CPD, including funding for a Masters qualification (or equivalent)
  • A genuine commitment to wellbeing, with a strong track record in supporting positive mental health and high levels of staff retention and promotion (twice awarded the Carnegie Gold Medal)
  • The ability to work from home by agreement, and subsidised access to our on-site Sports Centre and Swimming Pool, available for us throughout the day

Part time candidates are very welcome, and well supported, as we are one of eight schools in the UK to be a Flexible Working Ambassador School.
