We are looking to hire a highly driven and passionate teacher of English and Media who can demonstrate exceptional professional practice and student outcomes.
This is a brilliant place to innovate, make and learn. Elstree University Technical College opened in September 2013 and offers a unique education for students aged 14 to 19 specialising in behind the scenes multimedia production, digital technologies and the entertainments industry. We provide core academic education alongside technical, vocational learning designed to develop learners to be creative, innovative and reflective. We are also here to provide them with the necessary knowledge, skills and opportunities to be employed in the media industries where there is currently a substantial skills shortage.
This is a creative college full of vitality and enthusiasm. Our students are a credit to us and our campus is new and well resourced. Our staff are passionate and industry credible. EUTC benefits from leading academic and industry partners and aims to be a centre of excellence and the national leader specialising in education for the entertainment, film, television, theatre, visual arts and digital communication industries.
As a new college, we are still expanding and developing our curriculum. We currently have around 400 students on our role and expect to be at full capacity (600) by 2018/19.
This position provides a real opportunity for a proactive and inspiring Teacher of English and Media who can keep pace with our exceptional Media & Film Department at this innovative college. We welcome and encourage prospective candidates to come and see us and get a feel for our college. Thank you again for your interest in being a part of the teaching team at The Elstree UTC and working with the creative, curious learners we work for.
We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date should we receive suitable applications.
