Teacher of Design Technology

Up to Full Time

Salary £25,714 to £41,604           

Main Pay Scale 1 to Upper Pay Scale 3 (dependent on experience)


An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Teacher of Design Technology at Driffield School and Sixth Form from September 2022. We are looking for a highly-motivated, forward-thinking and passionate individual to join our Design Technology department in a friendly and supportive environment. If successful, you would be working closely with our Subject Leader of Design Technology, in an established team with three teachers and two technicians.  We have excellent facilities, with well-equipped workshops and promote the highest standards of teaching to support students of all backgrounds and abilities.

In their last visit (January 2020), Ofsted described our school as a ‘happy and friendly place,’ providing ‘a good quality of education to its pupils and sixth-form students’. As a school, we are dedicated to providing a great teacher in every classroom and are committed to high-quality, collective teacher development. This helps us to reduce the replication of effort and helps all teachers to thrive in our setting. We do this by prioritising the continuing development of our staff.  This comes in a variety of forms: professional subject-specific development delivered in department time; INSET days as well as through CPD opportunities across The Education Alliance.

Within The Education Alliance Multi Academy Trust, there are lots of opportunities for collaboration and also further opportunities to develop and progress.  As a trust, we are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives.  For too long in many schools, staff have been asked to choose between being seen as good at their job and being a good mum, dad, partner, son, daughter or friend. We are doing everything we can to support our staff to balance the demands of their jobs and those at home.

To support this, we:

We have removed the following:

Above all, we recognise that seeking to remove the number of tasks staff undertake will have little effect on improving work/home balance if this happens within a toxic culture.  To support this, we offer training for our leaders to ensure they are able to translate our values into behaviours which are built on the principles of dignity, respect, professionalism and integrity.

Driffield School is based in the heart of the bucolic Yorkshire Wolds and is easily accessible from local towns and cities (with commutes of 20 minutes from Beverley, 30 minutes from Scarborough and 40 minutes from York or Hull).  As a school, we are immensely proud of our students and would welcome the opportunity to meet you and show you around our school community.  If you would like an informal discussion about the role, or would like to visit us to see what we have to offer, please contact Laura Sanders on 01377 232362 or by email at

Driffield School & Sixth Form is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  Clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required prior to appointment.
