September 2015 – Present Supply Teacher of Design Technology
Protocol Education, 5 Albion Place, Leeds, LS1 6JL
Teaching a wide range of key stage 3 and 4 lessons in Design Technology: Resistant Materials Technology. At the start of the term I put in place an intervention to help GCSE DT coursework by setting up an after-school DT coursework. Students have an elective slot in their timetable for them to have an opportunity to do a different subject. I set up a Design and Make sessions every Thursdays for my electives which allowed students to have an opportunity for students to partake in project they wouldn’t have otherwise to do in their design and technology lessons. Worked in several schools around Yorkshire and the Humber including Brayton Academy, Ebor Academy Filey, Bedale High School, The Grammar School at Leeds, and The Crest Academy.
