Job Title: Design Technology Teacher
Contract: Full Time
Scale: M1-M6 + TPS and benefits
Kings Monkton is a successful co-educational independent school in the heart of Cardiff for children from 3-18 years old. Our vision is to give our children the future they deserve and pride ourselves on our inclusive, friendly and high achieving ethos. We offer our children small classes of 18, a caring and supportive environment, and excellent learning and teaching opportunities.
We are currently looking for an innovative and outstanding Design Technology teacher. The post has arisen due to the expansion of our school and the retirement from teaching of our full-time teacher. Design Technology sits in our Creative Arts Faculty, which is incredibly successful, with excellent results and extremely high standards throughout the school. We offer Design Technology; Food Technology; Music; BTEC Music Technology and Art as part of this faculty. Our pupils are very focused, and we ensure small classes by splitting groups between Food and Design Technology, so our classes of 18 are reduced to classes of 9 to ensure that we can offer real stretch and challenge to our pupils. Design Technology benefits from a purpose-built teaching area complete with C Touch screen; computer laboratory; 3D printing and metal, wood and plastic construction equipment. As such, the successful candidate must be an outstanding teacher with a passion for their subject and the ability to get the very best out of our children. You will join a passionate and creative team, who have their own Creative Arts Technician.
The interview will be based on a lesson observation, a formal panel and pupil panel interview. As such, we would welcome interested candidates to visit our school and to meet with me and the staff. Please contact Paul Norton to arrange.
There will be an opportunity to work with pupils throughout the school and a commitment to after school activities and events is essential.
As we are based in the heart of the City of Cardiff we have excellent access to all the local venues and make full use of this opportunity. If you would like to play your part in creating outstanding provision for our pupils, we would very much like to hear from you.
Kings Monkton Independent School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Criminal Records Bureau.
