Art & Design Teacher (part-time or full-time)

Salary: Inner London (competitive salary based on experience and skills)

Start date: September 2021
Contract: Part-time or full-time

Contract term: Permanent

This is an exciting time to be joining one of the most pioneering schools in the country. We are looking for an excellent art and design teacher who is passionate about their subject area and ready to develop their practice in a dynamic and innovative teaching environment. Ideally, the candidate would have a well-developed skill set within fine art and/or 3D design, confident teaching in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional media. We welcome teachers that also have skills in the use of digital technology and new media. This role will involve teaching secondary-sixth form level and therefore must have experience of teaching at Key Stage 4 and 5. We currently follow the AQA qualification in Art & Design at GCSE and A-level, specializing in Fine Art and 3D Design.


We believe the teaching of art and design should support students to think independently and to develop their own creative confidence as a means to making a difference to the world. Creating beautiful and expressive work is a key feature of School 21 as a whole and therefore, we are looking for a highly collaborative individual who is passionate about spreading the use of arts or design-led approaches across the curriculum.


We are keen to build cross curricular links and develop projects that involve external partnerships. We have a unique curriculum structure in the school with time allocated for projects called Curriculum 21 that allows for students to make a difference to their environment/community and work in interdisciplinary ways. Our ideal candidate will enjoy collaboration and be keen to share and develop their understanding of project-based learning. Art and Design is a popular subject throughout the whole school, so we are

looking for a confident teacher who can help us build a distinctive and bold vision for the department going forward. You will join a team of highly dedicated art and design teachers, who are keen to share experiences and collaborate. You can find out more about the
