Head of Food Technology
(Full time, MPS/UPS + TLR, Required for September 2017)

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our D and T department to teach Food Technology. Experience of Child Development would be advantageous. A TLR is available, dependent on the experience of the successful applicant.

The department has a very strong and stable team and is renowned for its supportive and collaborative working relationships. Department results have consistently been amongst the very best in the school over a number of years with Food Technology being a major contributor to these excellent results. The school has a well established A level Product Design course and the opportunity could exist to develop an A level Food course to run in parallel.

Knights Templar is a happy, oversubscribed and highly regarded mixed comprehensive school set in the pleasant market town of Baldock, North Hertfordshire with easy access to London and Cambridge. Pupils consistently achieve well above county and national averages in all external examinations.

In October 2012 Ofsted graded the school as “good” with Behaviour and Safety of Pupils being judged as “outstanding”. They commented that “students have exemplary personal and social skills” and that they have “an excellent attitude to learning”.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
