We are transforming lives – do you want to join us?
The Queen Elizabeth Academy are seeking to appoint a Technician to join our team. As a technician, you will be well supported and will have the ability to operate in the Science, Food and STEM departments. We are looking for a colleague who is positive, flexible and reliable. It will also be desirable for you to have worked in education before and understand how academies operate. At The Queen Elizabeth Academy we operate a culture of vigilance with regard to safeguarding our pupils and the candidate would have to demonstrate why they wanted to work in a school environment with children.
The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 715 pupils on roll. Following our Ofsted inspection in June 2022, we retained our “Good” rating, a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and students. Ofsted commented the pupils were “respectful of each other’s views and are exceptionally supportive. Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and the improvements that have been made in recent years. Pupils enjoy school and know that leaders and staff have the highest expectations for them.” The Ofsted report is a fair reflection of the academy and we continue to develop as we push from Good to Great.
In November 2016, as part of the Priority School Building Programme, we moved into brand new premises that have given us access to fantastic new facilities, which really set us apart in the locality.
As a proud Academy Transformation Trust academy we are devoted to professional development and support which is second to none. Our trust is registered as Disability Confident and we welcome all applications. Our ATT Institute offers hundreds of training events and leadership accreditation qualifications to develop your talent to its full potential. As an academy we believe it is our role to develop your expertise to the full through supportive coaching in order to transform the lives of our students.
Do you want to make a real difference to the lives of our students?
Do you have what it takes to work with a determined leadership team and staff, which promote excellence, and consistently challenge you to improve?
If so you may well have the “Golden Thread” we are looking for, a shared vision which links all of our staff.
