About the Job

MPS/UPS plus TLR 2B (£4,531) plus the possibility of a Recruitment and Retention Allowance of £2500

Co-op Academy Priesthorpe aims to provide an outstanding education for all our learners, founded on co-operative values, at the heart of the community.

Our 2018 outcomes at both GCSE and A Level have offered much cause for celebration. Headline GCSE achievement has risen significantly when compared with 2017 figures.

We are looking for an excellent practitioner, committed to making a difference to our students and to lead this key area within the Creative Design Faculty. This is a unique opportunity for the right individual to make a significant contribution to the team and help shape and build on our vision and our ethos.

This is a great opportunity for a talented and ambitious professional to make a sustained and substantial contribution to the growth and development of the Academy. The role offers the successful candidate a challenge that will be both rewarding and fulfilling and will support you to achieve your own personal career goals and aspirations.

We are seeking an individual who is a self-starter, who can take this over-subscribed department and drive it forward alongside and in conjunction with other subjects in the faculty. The technology department is well resourced and funded, with a CNC machine, large bed laser cutter and three 3D printers as well as two workshops with traditional plastic and wood working machinery. The department also benefits from a designated CADCAM suite with modern PCs and CADCAM software. Results have improved year on year giving the candidate a fantastic spring board to further develop the profile of the subject.

We are looking for someone who has the drive, energy and enthusiasm to work with our existing team to further build on the progress already made. The ability to teach up to GCSE is essential.

Please take time to review the Co-operative Academies Trust brochure which outlines ‘Why work for CAT?’ In addition, Trust employees enjoy a comprehensive benefits package, including discounted gym memberships, leisure offers, childcare vouchers, cycle to work, Co-op Credit Union, season ticket and rental deposit loans, cash-back healthcare scheme and co-operative discount offers.

We would encourage you to come and meet our students and staff in the department, including an informal discussion with the

Faculty Leader. Please contact Jessica Poulter to arrange a visit (
