We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic candidate to this brand new role of Pastoral Support Coordinator at the Outstanding and World Class UTC Reading.

The UTC opened in September 2013 in a newly refurbished building, which replicates a business environment with state-of–the-art facilities and was judged by Ofsted as Outstanding in every category in May 2015 in only its second year of operation. In December 2017, the UTC was awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark. This is not only a relatively new school but a new approach to educating 14-19 year olds; which is possibly the most exciting change in the education landscape in decades.

In addition students have access to globally recognised professional qualifications to prepare them for the workplace. At capacity we will be educating 560 students who will all have a passion for Engineering or Computer Science; it is a truly inspirational environment.
This role will provide you with:
• unparalleled professional development including access to a full suite of professional qualifications including MOS, MTA and AutoDesk
• focussed teaching - only teaching KS4 and KS5 classes
• small class sizes
• passionate students
• opportunities for career development as the UTC grows
• An opportunity to be at the forefront of STEM education
If you believe that this is an environment where you can thrive, develop and substantially contribute to an exciting future for UTC Reading then you are encouraged to explore further by contacting the Principal, Jonathan Nicholls, via firstname.lastname@example.org for a more detailed discussion, if required.
