Job Description

Design & Technology Teacher Wandsworth London

Vacancy: Design & Technology Teacher Wandsworth – required ASAP

Chestnut Grove Academy are looking for an experienced D&T Teacher to teach KS3, KS4 and KS5 – preferably with a Resistant Materials/Product Design background. This post will also include teaching food but only for Years 7 and 8.

D & T at Chestnut Grove Academy is taught in a way that nurtures young thinkers and inspires them to be the designers for the next generation.

Students are challenged in ways that encourage them to work independently; designing, problem solving and creating.  We deliver strong and diverse projects that cater for students of all capabilities and that encourage them to look at the world and investigate how they can use design to improve it.

Key Stage 3

D&T at Key Stage 3 focuses on developing students’ design and manufacturing skills.

Key Stage 4

Students work independently and are guided by their teacher through mini-projects ending in a final Controlled Assessment in Year 11.  All Key Stage 4 students currently follow the AQA GCSE Product Design course.


London is rich in terms of design, architecture and art.  As part of their studies, students visit many places such as The Design Museum and the V&A allowing them to see how design shapes our everyday lives.  In addition, we have a variety of designers who will come in to run workshops which allow students to engage with real life briefs.  Our D&T club also runs every Tuesday which all students are welcome to attend.
