About the course

Our subject mentors in Design & Technology are experienced teachers who are enthusiastic about your development and know what is required for you to succeed.

They have designed a thorough programme of teacher training for you that will enable you to learn new skills in Design & Technology and forge professional relationships with experienced teachers within the Academy Trust.

Additionally, CPD sessions are run on a weekly basis to ensure that you maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills you need within the teaching profession.

Interview process

You will initially conduct a ~30 minute interview with representatives from CCCU and St George’s school. Here you will be asked set questions regarding your experiences and how they has prepared you for teaching as well as questions around your readiness to teach your subject.

Following the interview you will deliver a 15 minute teaching episode to the panel on a subject of your choice. The teaching episode must be designed for a higher ability year 7 class. You can chose to present the subject in any way that you wish. You will have access to a Windows computer and a projector. You will need to bring any additional resources that you need on the day with you (printing, equipment, etc).

Following the teaching episode you will be asked to complete a ~15 minute reflection. The reflection should include the following:

  • the strengths of the teaching episode
