For September 2023, Cheltenham College is looking to appoint either an experienced teacher, Early Careers Teacher or recent graduate with a suitable Textiles/Fashion Design degree to teach Textiles across the full age and ability ranges, including A Level.

This is a part-time teaching post (0.56 FTE).

The Textiles classrooms include a CNC embroiderer and screen printing facilities, dye sublimation printer, heat press, a designated room for storage and dye preparation, large working areas across two classrooms, plus full use of the laser cutter, Adobe Illustrator and 2D Design in the shared CAD room. In addition, teachers are supported by a part-time Textiles Technician.

There is an exhibition of work once a year and College has also produced two fashion shows in recent years. External competitions have also been entered and national successes achieved.

In addition to becoming a vital member of a busy and successful department, applicants should be willing to contribute to the pastoral and co-curricular life of a busy boarding school.
