An exciting opportunity has arisen for a DT teacher to join our Design and Technology department in our successful, vibrant and culturally diverse school.

This post is equally suited to an experienced teacher or an NQT looking for an exciting first position in a supportive school. What matters the most is that you are a talented and innovative practitioner with a passion for Design and Technology.

The Design & Technology department at Whitefield School aims to encourage and enable our students to remain creative, curious and confident by keeping them connected to the world outside. Our students enjoy a rich and personal learning journey which offers them opportunities to give physical shape and visual form to their design concepts, solutions, ideas and feelings. Through this process students locate themselves as worthwhile young people whose individual qualities are valued and developed.

The Design and Technology department reflects our creative industry where design is at the forefront. Whether our students design an innovative product, building or graphical concept the formal elements of Environment, Aesthetics and Ergonomics are integral to all student designs and innovations.

During Year 7 and Year 8 we offer Design & Technology for one period and Catering for two periods. In Year 9 students can choose a Catering or Engineering pathway for their Year 9 bridging year and then for GCSE from Year 10. There is also a lot of collaboration with the Art faculty who offer 3D Design. We are always reviewing our curriculum and looking to expand our offer to students, so the ability to offer a range of subjects is welcomed from candidates.

The successful candidate will have access to continuous professional development through our dedicated internal and external CPD programme. The school also offers various benefits to all employees through our extensive wellbeing programme. Flexible working could be considered.
