Downend School is looking for a full time, permanent DT Technician to join our thriving school. 

About us

Downend School is an exciting and vibrant learning community where every student is supported to achieve their absolute best and every member of teaching and support staff play their part in creating this ethos. We are proud of the exciting curriculum, outstanding pastoral care and excellent opportunities for enrichment that Downend School provides.

Downend School is situated in leafy South Gloucestershire, but is less than 25 minutes away from the heart of the cosmopolitan vibrancy of Bristol City Centre. We offer the benefits not only of working in an exciting and supportive school, but also from being part of Castle School Education Trust.  


We can offer you:

  • Commitment to CPD and development of all staff including collaborative support and instructional coaching to allow teachers to thrive
  • A clear curriculum vision and focus on evidence-based practice
  • A commitment to inclusivity and fostering of diversity
  • Values and vision that are lived not laminated
  • An open and honest culture
  • A commitment to the health and wellbeing of our staff

About the role:

Salary: £19,650 FTE (£16,826 pro rata) 

Hours: 37 hours per week, 39 weeks of the year 

You will provide technical and administrative support to teaching staff, including in-class support with lessons. You’ll be enabling our pupils to receive a full experience of DT in engaging lessons.

About you 

You would need experience in working with a range of different materials and equipment, however, you do not need to have specific education experience as we can provide on the job training. If you are interested in considering a career move into a role which includes your design, manufacture and/or DT background but also an opportunity to contribute to developing student knowledge and skills, this position could be for you. 


In order to apply for this role please complete an application form by Thursday 1st September, 9am. 

Interviews will take place week commencing 12th September. 


Please know that depending on the number of applications received we may decide to close the advert early.
