Top RISC OS-aware school seeks new staffPublished: 29th Jan 2007, 22:51:34 | Permalink | Printable
IT technician post reopened A RISC OS-powered school for deaf children has posted a number of new job vacancies after impressing Ofsted inspectors. The award-winning Knightsfield school is looking for a RISC OS-aware IT technician after its previous one left to concentrate on his university course. The Herts school was also searching for a maths teacher to start in Easter or Summer this year.
Deputy head Sharon Pointeer said: "Knightsfield School for hearing impaired pupils has a number of vacancies for staff.
"We also have a number of support staff jobs, such as teaching assistants, to work during the school day, and care staff to work in the evenings in our residential provision.
"Finally, we are re-advertising our technician post as, sadly, the person we recruited last time through the advertising to the RISC OS community is in the process of completing a university dissertation and has reluctantly decided that he needs more time to concentrate on this."
In April, last year, Knightsfield bagged a top ICT award, a national first for a deaf school. On January 17 and 18, it was visited by the UK school standards watchdog; their subsequent report said Knightsfield was "outstanding" in all areas. The school uses a mix of RiscPCs and Apple Macs for its classroom work.
