The Headteacher and Governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and energetic Senior Science Technician to join the vibrant and successful Science team at Robertsbridge Community College. 

The College is a thriving rural school, with a skilled and enthusiastic staff team. We are committed to ensuring that our students become well rounded citizens of the world, equipped with the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need for whatever they choose to do next in life.

Our intake is truly comprehensive, drawing from a large geographic area that includes both rural and urban environments. We cherish the diversity that this intake brings and are extremely proud of our College.

Visited by Ofsted in February 2017, the College maintained its ‘Good’ status, with the official report stating that “new teachers feel very well supported and all staff value the helpful opportunities for professional development in a culture of encouragement.”

Under the direction of the Subject Leader of Science, you will be required to co-ordinate the use of practical resources, equipment and facilities thereby contributing to the effective delivery of the Science Curriculum Intent. You will have the opportunity to liaise with staff, both within and outside the department, providing assistance and advice in the practical needs of the Science curriculum. The role includes oversight of Health & Safety practices in the department as well as compiling risk assessments, accessing CLEAPPS and relevant Hazcards. As a key member of the Science team, you will be provided with training to become the Fire Warden and main First Aider for the department. Hopefully you will have the confidence to assist with practical elements within lessons from time to time, interacting with students, providing expert knowledge and fostering a love of Science in our students.

Previous experience of working within a school environment is desirable but not essential.
