About United Learning



United Learning is a unique group of independent and state schools working together to achieve the best in everyone. Our vision is to provide excellent education so that all young people are able to make a success of their lives and, if we are to realise this vision, we need to make sure we attract, develop and reward the key ingredient – you.



Job Introduction



Opportunity to play a role in the development of our highly successful Academy



We seek an outstanding and innovative ICT & Media Technician to join a dynamic and supportive department. As an IT & Media Technician, you will be part of the team responsible for the delivery and effective deployment of the Academy’s ICT System. There might be the opportunity for additional responsibility for an exceptional candidate. You will have the opportunity to share expertise across a growing group of Academies and independent schools within United Learning.



We know that outstanding ICT & Media Technicians have transferable skills and are confident and effective in all aspects of their role, but we also recognise that you will need support and challenge so that you can grow to be the best you can be – we will make this happen.



You will relate to the Academy’s ethos of “the best in everyone” and enjoy working with a rich, diverse group of young people in a dynamic and vibrant learning environment. Walthamstow Academy is sponsored by United Learning. As part of the largest group of Academies and independent schools, we offer outstanding professional development and career progression across both the maintained and independent sector.



To conclude, we need someone who is passionate about making a difference, please get in touch.



Main Responsibilities




  • Providing support for users, assessing and responding to their needs and supporting staff and students in the use of ICT resources and network

  • Monitoring of backup, validation and restoration of systems and data

  • Providing administrative and technical support for Media teaching and learning and develop appropriate teaching resources.

  • Leading on the implementation of new projects, in relation to ICT, teaching and learning, Media, AV functionality and usage, and as directed by the ICT Network manager.





Working for us





Walthamstow Academy opened its impressive new building in 2006 and since then we have achieved excellent results both at GCSE and at A-Level. In 2018, Walthamstow Academy students achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.53 (which is in the top 14% of schools nationally). At A-Level, our students achieve excellently with many of them progressing to Russell Group institutions. Because we are so successful, the school is now full and oversubscribed on first choices alone.





We do not achieve these results by accident. At Walthamstow Academy, we believe in the best in everyone. We have a relentless focus on high expectations and aim to identify barriers to success and provide necessary support as quickly as possible to ensure our students achieve. We do not accept excuses and always strive for the best.





The Academy is proud of its multi-cultural character and we celebrate the diversity of heritage in our community. 84% of our students are from minority ethnic groups, many coming from African, Caribbean, Eastern European, Turkish and Pakistani communities.





Within the community served by the academy there is social and economic disadvantage with more than half of the students being eligible for Pupil Premium. One third of the students have a first language other than English and a significant number have low levels of literacy on entry. Many students enter the Academy with low levels of attainment and the staff work hard to add value to their performance. Standards across the Academy are above national averages in most subjects.





The Academy is located close to the North Circular Road, M11 and both Blackhorse Road and Walthamstow Central underground stations from where it takes about half an hour to get into central London. The Academy is situated in a part of London where property prices are still relatively inexpensive and within easy access of Epping Forest, the Lee Valley and rural Hertfordshire and Essex.





Walthamstow Academy has achieved the CPLD Gold Award in recognition of our investment in professional development, because we know that without our wonderful staff, what we have achieved would not be possible, so thank you for your interest in coming to work with us. It starts with someone like you believing you can contribute further to our community.
