  • £15,689 to £16,447 pro rata (SAT 4 points 12 to 14 £18.242 to £19,123 FTE)

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational and experienced PE Technician on a fixed term basis until end of July 2021 term. Candidates will be talented, dynamic and will challenge and motivate our students to get the very best meaningful outcomes.

The main purpose of this role is to work with teachers to facilitate, organise and support teaching and learning activities in the PE department by preparing equipment and resources, supporting students in classes & monitoring health & safety.

Peacehaven Community School is a Swale Academies Trust (SAT) School who welcomes applicants who want to develop their careers and explore the opportunities that working within an established academy trust can bring. SAT has a proud history of supporting non-selective schools to out-perform grammar schools in Kent. Here in East Sussex, the Trust is applying those same principles to areas where students have not had the advantages given to their peers in more affluent areas.

PCS is a fully inclusive school with a Special Facility for students with a Speech, Language and Communication Specialism. There is a higher than average % of students with SEND need throughout the school and we offer Small Group Access Teaching to students where required.

At PCS, achievement is a focus for all within an inclusive and supportive school community. We develop confident, happy, ambitious students who take pride in their learning and flourish. Students will be socially aware and leave our school being academically successful, having the skills and qualities to face new challenges.

We look to instil Aspire, Believe and Achieve throughout our school community. We achieve this by enhancing the hopes of our students by inspiring a sense of craftsmanship, re-drafting and improving what we do, aiming for excellence and pride in our work. Self-confidence comes from the ability to succeed, even though the journey may have been difficult.

We encourage our students to have strategies to see through problems and complete the task together as part of a community. As our students gain in self-confidence they raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and reap the rewards of doing this. We want our students to rise to challenges and perform at their best, this will then give them solid foundations for their future careers beyond PCS.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our vibrant school on the south coast, near Brighton. Life at PCS does not stand still and we constantly seek innovative ways to improve standards. You will have the ability to motivate and inspire students and will be relentless in the pursuit of the highest standards of progress for every student, regardless of their ability. 

We provide constant, high quality CPD and all staff are passionate about sharing good practice.

If you are looking for an opportunity that will excite and challenge you, and have boundless energy and resilience, then we look forward to receiving your application.

If I am successful in gaining an interview, how will this occur during the current COVID-19 pandemic?

Due to the current situation we may plan to interview remotely using a video call. We would ensure that candidates who were successful in gaining an interview were supported with the technology so that this process is seamless. We will provide you with details of the process with your interview invite.

Our advice would be that those who were successful in gaining an interview should prepare as they would for a face to face and dress smart casual. We will allow plenty of time to ensure that you are able to answer our questions in full and you will not be judged if you are having problems with your technology.

We will leave plenty of opportunity for questions at the end of the interview, and we will spend lots of time talking and unpicking your answers. Please come prepared to share anything you’d like that we didn’t cover, or any questions you have about it. We really appreciate your adaptability in these unprecedented times.
