An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Curriculum Support Technician to join our school team. You will be based within the Science department and will need to be flexible to provide support where required.

At times you may be asked to provide practical support in the lab throughout the lesson- you will need to be comfortable in this situation, organised and professional.

The right candidate will have lab-based experience- this may have been from working in a similar role or could be from a lab-based university course. You will be very organised and punctual, be able to communicate effectively and work well individually and as part of a team. You will also possess the ability to remain calm under pressure and always maintain attention to detail. Knowledge of health and safety, safe storage of chemicals and good lab practice is essential. Ideally you will possess a first aid certificate or be willing to go through with the course if the school requires it.
