Teacher of Food Technology (Part time, Permanent)


At Heart of England School, we strive for excellence in everything we do and have a clear, commonly held vision of what we are here to achieve. 

Our young people are well cared for and every effort is made to promote their educational and personal development. Hard work and achievement are top of the agenda for everyone.

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional Teacher of KS3 and KS4 Food Technology to join our creative and dynamic 11-16 team. The ability to teach Product Design is desirable but not essential. The Department is forward looking and innovative in its approach to learning and teaching at KS3 and food preparation and nutrition at KS4.

The suitable candidate will want to make a significant contribution to the success of the team. Please see the attached description of the department for further information.

Our vision is simple; we create futures and that includes ensuring our staff have them too. At Heart of England we are clear in our approach to professional wellbeing, which is crucial at a time of ever-shifting challenge.

We believe in agency and autonomy for our staff. We believe that the same intellectual curiosity that lead you to want to study your subject at university and then teach it to others is what makes you best placed to make decisions about the way you teach your subject now. We believe that when it comes to learning and teaching our motto, “No One Way … By Design”, encapsulates our philosophy of enabling staff to deliver the best possible outcomes for students in a culture that acknowledges variety whilst grounded in shared values and consistency of approach in our decided essentials.

The subject teams have designed their own respective curriculums for KS3 following the sequence of knowledge and skills they believe to be essential for students as they develop through the years. We’ve also continued to adapt our behaviour policy with the motto ‘Our Way…By Design’ showing that shared values, defined habits, consistent routines and clear boundaries are the bedrock of a successful school. Another thing about us: we’re not into quick fixes or superficial tweaks; we’re in it for sustainable excellence. Our vision outlines an ongoing process of continuous improvement and an adaptive, restless drive for the implementation of best practice grounded in educational research.

If you think we sound like the kind of place where you’d enjoy leading then the future you are seeking may well be here.

Heart of England School is committed to keeping children, young people and vulnerable adults safe.
