Opportunity for dedicated and enthusiastic Design technology Technician to join the team at Castle Mead Academy, as part of The Mead Educational Trust.

This would particularly suit a candidate interested in supporting in Food, although willingness to work across other areas of the department is important also.

In August 2019, Castle Mead Academy, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors and welcomed our first year 7 cohort. Since then, we have never looked back! By 2024, the eight-form entry school will be at capacity with a cohort of 1200 scholars. Building on the success of Rushey Mead Academy, Castle Mead is making available in the heart of Leicester a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country so that every scholar leaves us with high value academic qualifications and wider positive dispositions to enable them to lead fulfilling lives.

The opportunity to work in a growing school, is like no other. When you start a school from scratch like we have, it is a golden opportunity to build something from the ground up and consider all of the ideas from different schools and sectors – but in one place, here in Leicester! As we now progress our next chapter, in our new state-of-the-art school building with brand-new Design Technology rooms at the heart of the school, join us and help to build a genuine legacy of your own, alongside colleagues who are aligned in their values.

We are recruiting a team of like-minded experts to help realise our vision and “Grow a Community of Excellence.” This is a rare opportunity, so as we challenge convention, lead without preconception and are unapologetically ambitious on behalf of our scholars.

This is an exciting opportunity for a person who is:

  • proactive, skilful and has a positive outlook;
  • willing to learn and work as part of our team;
  • going to contribute to the ethos our school in our new £30m building, on the picturesque riverside!

This is a unique opportunity to work in a school where:

  • our scholars are courteous, well-mannered and charming;
  • the staff team are relentless in their ambition on behalf of pupils and colleagues;
  • there is a growing reputation of Castle Mead providing excellence in the heart of Leicester.

To apply, please submit your application by Wednesday 6th July 2022.
