A fantastic opportunity for a well–qualified and ambitious teacher of design technology to join our dynamic STEM Academy. We are proud to have recently receive ‘Good’ judgements in all categories during our OFSTED visit in April and are particularly pleased that the inspection team acknowledged that:

  • “Pupils feel valued at IKB”
  • “Pupils talk with enthusiasm about the school’s specialism of science, technology, engineering and maths”
  • “Leaders have an ambitious vision for the school”
  • “Teachers have strong subject knowledge” and
  • “Teachers say leaders are considerate of staff workload and wellbeing”

We are looking to appoint a teacher who, under the guidance of the Director of Design, Art and Technology, will teach predominately at IKB where students choose to study GCSE Product Design, BTec Engineering and/or BTec Construction. These subjects are all well subscribed with the majority of IKB students choosing at least one design technology subject. Student outcomes in these subjects are amongst the best in the school. We have a talented team of design technology teachers and can match the specific timetable to the specialism of the suitable candidate, but we are looking for a teacher who can teach engineering. You will teach across the full age and ability range with a focus on KS4 and KS5 qualifications in your specialist area.

You will join a school with strong systems and processes that support teacher wellbeing and reduce workload. This includes a consistent and effective behaviour policy that means teaching is undisturbed in lessons, allowing teachers to teach. A teaching and learning policy built upon a strong curriculum including schemes of learning and lesson resources. Teaching teams follow a common Futura curriculum and you will be part of a wider Trust team of subject experts who share resources and planning.

If you are a highly effective teacher, able to form excellent educational relationships with students and are keen to contribute in an ambitious professional team, we would love to hear from you.

This is a fantastic opportunity and the post would be suitable for experienced practitioners as well as newly qualified teachers, who would be able to benefit from our successful and supportive Futura Learning Partnership ECT Induction Programme

In return we offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • A full and varied CPD programme offering teaching and leadership development for our staff
  • An opportunity to work in a supportive team from whom you can learn, develop and grow
  • Wider opportunities to be involved across the Futura Learning Partnership
  • An energised and professional working environment
  • Benefits include; pension scheme, discounted sports centre/gym membership, free wellbeing support & medical cover, free on-site parking and cycle to work scheme.
