Based at Goldwyn School, Godinton Lane, Great Chart, Ashford, Kent TN23 3BT 

We are seeking to appoint a teacher of Art and Design Technology to join our experienced and dedicated team of specialist staff.  This is an exciting opportunity for a confident and motivated teacher with a range of skills, subject knowledge, drive and passion to make a difference to students who are likely to have experienced little previous success within a school environment. 

We are looking for a flexible, committed and enthusiastic teacher to contribute towards our curriculum delivery at KS4 (Art) and KS3 (Design Technology).  The right candidate will have experience of working with students whose primary needs are SEMH and Autism and be able to work positively within our team to ensure that the delivery across the school is purposeful and appropriate to the needs of our students. 

We are an outstanding school and always looking to develop our practice; as such, we are ever keen to employ candidates who have a range of professional experiences and can offer, not only quality teaching, but something ‘different’. 

We welcome qualified teachers at any stage of their career, from mainstream or special education as well as newly qualified teachers.

Visits to our school are warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Gregoire Godin, Vice Principal: gregoire.godin@goldwyn.kent.sch.uk
