Collingwood College is looking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Design and Technology to join our well-resourced and friendly D&T team for a maternity cover period.
The post will appeal to recently qualified or experienced teachers, with modern D&T skills and a specialist knowledge in Resistant materials/product design and Engineering disciplines.
Candidates with strong skills in 3D CAD software (Inventor/Solid works), experience in 3D printing, Laser cutting and CNC machining will be well suited to the role. Additionally, candidates with basic Electronics skills would also be desirable. The job will involve teaching a mix of KS3 and KS4 classes across a range of D&T topics. KS3 Is predominantly Resistant Materials and Systems/Graphics based projects. KS4 is D&T GCSE across years 9,10 and 11, and also delivery some L1 EAL Engineering lessons, which are shared with another staff member.
As a former Technology College, D&T remains a very popular KS4 option subject, with around 170 pupils electing to take a D&T subject each year at KS4 and KS5. Currently we offer the new D&T GCSE, Textiles (as Art-Textiles), GCSE Food & Nutrition and very popular level 2 courses in Engineering Manufacture and Systems & Control Engineering. We also offer the D&T A-Level in Product Design.
The department is passionate about D&T and raising the profile of STEM. We operate a successful Robot Wars club (with a recent TV appearance!) and Green power Electric Race car team, currently ranked 6th out of 250 Teams Nationally.
A candidate with a passion for extracurricular commitments and working with young people outside the Department would also be highly desirable. We are a forward thinking & well-resourced department with access to 4 well equipped workshops, 2 dedicated IT suites, 5 3D printers, 2 Laser cutters, CNC Milling and most every type of traditional workshop machinery. Salary is dependent on experience & skill set.
A TLR 2.1 may be available for a suitably experienced and qualified candidate, but this will entail additional responsibilities above and beyond the job role described above.
