Always oversubscribed, we are expanding our school so that more local families can experience the excellent education offered here at Admiral Lord Nelson School for over two decades!

Therefore, we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and talented Teacher of Design who enjoys working within a supportive and dedicated team. We are looking for a Food Technology specialist with strong subject knowledge, who quickly builds relationships with students and breaks down barriers to learning. We want a teacher who inspires children to achieve their potential and loves to see their students experiencing the joy of success every day in their learning!

As a school we are passionate about providing all students with the opportunity to take part in Food Technology at Key Stage 3, with a growing number of students opting to choose it as a Key Stage 4 option.

We are expanding our facilities with the addition of a brand new, fully equipped Food Room and therefore, are looking to appoint a second enthusiastic Teacher of Food Technology.

The right candidate will teach and contribute to a successful, innovative and highly motivated team of Design teachers and Technicians committed to delivering a stimulating and challenging Design curriculum. Having an experienced Food Technology teacher currently in post means that this vacancy would be suitable for an NQT. Equally, we welcome applications from experienced teachers.

Early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to close the vacancy if a suitable candidate is found.
