We are currently looking for a qualified teacher of resistant materials to teach full time on a long term supply basis in a north Manchester secondary school

Randstad Education is the UK market leader in education recruitment. Helping teachers and support staff to find temporary and permanent education jobs for nearly twenty years through extensive partnerships with all organisations in the secondary, primary and SEN sectors. Working with over 2,500 schools each week we find the right match for your skills.

The School
This large community school catering to children from the Crumpsall, Cheetham Hill and Blackley area of north Manchester has long been recognised in the area for providing excellent support and motivation suited to their students' needs. The school has a primary school attached to allow all siblings to attend these state of the art facilities together. The school has excellent technology facilities and the technology department work as team of teachers, support staff and technicians to provide inspiring lessons with practical and vocational elements. The school is requiring improvement from its last Ofsted inspection and is now working in partnership with DFE, driving forward to achieve 'good' in the near future.
The school has easy access from the Metrolink and M60 motorway.

The Child
The students who attend come from predominantly large families of south Asian descent ( 95%) . The most common religion amongst students is Islam and many students speak Urdu or Gujarati as a first language. As such experience of working with predominantly EAL students in another UK secondary school would be advantageous. The provision of EAL and SEN support is excellent.

The Job
The Design & Technology Department provides a stimulating, well-balanced and inclusive curriculum which is designed to allow all pupils to maximise their potential.
Design & Technology is studied by all pupils within Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9) and is based on the guidelines outlined within the National Curriculum.
The students have the opportunity to experience a wide range of subjects including Resistant Materials, Food Technology, Textiles Technology and Graphic Products.
All students will learn, develop and experience the following skills:
Design and make products using a variety of materials that work well and look good;
Make design decisions that matter to the user of the products and services and to the wider world;
Draw on a wide range of knowledge to solve problems in relevant real life contexts;
Develop an enterprising attitude and take risks;
See opportunities and make things happen;
Deciding how successful they have been and evaluating their work;

All applicants must have completed a PGCE Secondary qualification or Bachelor of Education providing Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Applications from FE qualified instructors or teachers with QTLS or overseas qualified teachers not familiar with the GCSE curriculum will not be considered.

NQTs will be supported in their induction.
Salary range: £475-£700 per week (pre 12 week agency worker regulations, dependent on references and experience)
