This is a fantastic opportunity to join our newly formed Trust – The Eastern Learning Alliance (ELA).

We are committed to providing an inspirational and highly engaging experience for all our students and wish to appoint a dynamic, highly organised and well-qualified teacher to take responsibility for the leadership and delivery of Design and Technology across the school.

The successful candidate will also be willing to make a wider contribution to the life of this busy, exciting school. The post is open to either a specialist DT teacher, or a talented practitioner who would like to develop their career in this direction.

We pride ourselves on fostering a love of DT within young people through excellent teaching and working collaboratively to sustain a culture of very high expectations for both staff and students.

As a school, we are innovative in realising the potential of all our students. We are at the forefront of e-learning and all students in Years 7-11 now have use of their own iPad’s to learn in an engaging way.

We are equally committed to realising the potential of our staff. We offer a supportive environment in which to work and there is an outstanding CPD programme.

The successful candidate will be:

  • Exemplary and inspiring in their teaching;
  • Highly organised and motivational
  • An inclusive individual, with high expectations of all students, who is committed to all pupils reaching their full potential;
  • Reflective in classroom practice;
  • Dedicated to raising standards and working in partnership with others;
  • Have high expectations of themselves and others;
  • Be a good communicator with excellent interpersonal skills;
  • Have excellent subject knowledge;
  • Be flexible and a good team player.

With your knowledge and passion for DT, you will have the opportunity to build a successful curriculum to deliver a high quality learning experience to our inspirational students.

In return, WVC and The Eastern Learning Alliance can offer you:

  • Reduced contact time for all teachers to facilitate professional learning/reduce workload
  • Excellent career pathway opportunities with a culture of looking to promote from within, including responsibility across the Trust
  • Support in an organisation where wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do
  • Subsidised access to the ELA sports centre leisure facilities available for use before, during and after the school day
