Job Start: ASAP

I am recruiting for an Art and DT teacher to join an academy school in Chatham. This is an opportunity to join a well-run department, with an ethos of collaboration, which has led to good results over recent years. The successful applicant will be joining an established and committed team of staff who work to ensure that all students both enjoy and make progress in Art and DT. The school has fantastic grounds and resources, with the building itself being relatively new. Due to the recent lockdown, this role will initially involve delivering remote learning, but you will need to be able to travel to Chatham, as it is expected you will deliver face-to-face lessons when pupils return.

Applicants should have experience of teaching and assessing the new GCSE specification, and be confident in teaching Art and/or DT to GCSE level.

The school welcome applicants who demonstrate that they:
  • Teach quality lessons
  • Exude a passion for Art and DT
  • Can plan and thoroughly prepare lessons
  • Are confident delivering remote learning, including live lessons
  • Demonstrate excellent subject knowledge and pedagogy
  • Set and mark work according to school assessment policy
  • Assess, record and report on the development, progress and attainment of the pupils according to the school's policy and schedule
  • Ensure that data is used effectively as useful measure of progress, always accompanied with a deep understanding of the pupils as individuals
  • Prepare pupils thoroughly for public examinations and assess pupils for the purpose of such examinations
  • Establish a consistent disciplinary approach which promotes self-direction and positive self-image; set high standards for pupil behaviour and manage inappropriate behaviour effectively using the school behaviour policy.
  • Are willing to share and develop good practice, not only in the department but across all areas of the school
  • Inspire, motivate and develop students
  • Can be a PSHRE tutor to an assigned group of students.
  • Can liaise effectively with the Year Group Progress Leaders / Pastoral Care leaders to ensure the implementation of the school's pastoral system.
  • Can communicate effectively with the parents of students as appropriate, attend parents' evenings, Open/Information Evenings.

The School offers:
  • the opportunity to work within an enthusiastic and established team under the direction of an experienced head of department.
  • A CPD programme focussed on developing staff at different stages in their careers and the possibility of CPD linked to middle leadership.
  • a technology rich school which is well resourced
  • on-site parking

The school has a strong ethos of student welfare. Therefore, any successful applicant will undergo a full enhanced criminal record check (DBS).
