Textiles Teacher (0.56 FTE – 1 Year Maternity Cover)

Date Posted: Wednesday 09 February 2022

Vacancy Type: Maternity Cover

Closing date for application: 22/02/2022

From September 2022, for a one-year fixed period of maternity cover, College is looking to appoint an experienced teacher or recent graduate to teach Textiles across the full age and ability ranges, including A Level. The postholder may also be required to teach a small number of Resident Materials lessons to Third Form (Year 9), for which full training shall be provided as well as in-class support from the Resident Materials Technician.

The Design Technology and Textiles (DT&T) department is housed in two buildings towards the edge of the main campus and specifically converted for DT&T. 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.

The work produced in the department is varied both in form and the materials used with most pupils achieving a grade 9 for their coursework. 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.

The College has its own salary scale.
