Textiles Teacher

The Vacancy We are looking for an experienced person to bring textiles lesson to pupils of secondary school age (from 11-19). This is part-time post, between 50-60%, with around 10 hours of teaching per week. Class sizes are small and as most classes are split for craft lessons, the craft teacher will be generally working with groups of a maximum size of 10/11 pupils at a time. In the last two years of upper school, some pupils may choose craft as a specialism, so the post holder in some instances may be working with very small numbers of pupils to a high standard in the production of textiles at Level 3.
