Design and Technology Technician
The school is seeking an experienced professional who:
* is qualified and confident in handling workshop equipment such as lathes, jigsaws and drills
* has a proven track record of using and maintaining workshop equipment in a school context or similar
* is a strong role model to children and will model the school's very high standards of behaviour and mutual respect
* is able to educate and train pupils in safe use of workshop machinery where appropriate
This role would be on a part-time basis, three days a week, to start immediately- the school is flexible on days other than Monday, which is already staffed for this purpose. Our client is happy to consider applications from both experienced technicians and trained Design and Technology teachers who are knowledgeable on the Woodwork/Resistant Materials/Product Design side of the field.
Our client is a highly successful academy, part of a two-school trust, who have recently received an excellent Ofsted report, with particular praise for the school's learning environment and behaviour expectations- "students' behaviour and attitudes are outstanding". This is a school that balances an inclusive ethos with aspirational teaching and targets- students here make good progress regardless of their background and are supported well both in a pastoral and an academic context. The combination of their non-negotiable behaviour policy and strong sense of community produces students who are ambitious, responsible and empathetic, with the opportunity to participate in charity events for the local community and take up leadership roles contributing to school development. Other community touches such as a school dog contribute to a learning environment that is welcoming, ambitious and harmonious.
The school site is very modern with excellent facilities for DT, Science and PE, having enjoyed a £20 million new build in 2017. It is located close to the M25 with easy access via car and bus from Cheshunt, Potters Bar and Enfield.

* Enhanced DBS or Overseas Police Checks if necessary
