Lincoln UTC is a unique learning environment. We are a 14 to 18 specialist college for science and engineering. Most visitors to the college assume (wrongly) that we are either a selective or a fee-paying private school. This misunderstanding initially stems from the stunning buildings we are fortunate enough to work in. Our Victorian, listed building at the front is reminiscent of Hogwarts. To the rear of the site, our state of the art laboratories and workshops are housed in an equally impressive, but totally contrasting, £9 million new build. The atmosphere within the college is just as impressive as the physical learning environment. Our students don’t wear uniform. They all (right down to year 10) wear business dress. They look like adults and they behave like adults. This is an unusually calm, purposeful and respectful learning community. You really need to come on a visit to fully appreciate how different this is from ordinary schools.
We are a very small learning community with just over 50 students in each of the four year groups (200 students) in total. Our class sizes tend to be smaller than average. All of our students have chosen to come here because they are interested in and want to specialise in science and engineering. Our results our significantly ahead of national average.
The staff team are hardworking, friendly and supportive and totally committed to making a success of the UTC. It is a small staff team comprising the Principal, one Vice Principal and twenty teachers. The senior leadership team doesn’t currently include an Assistant Principal. This is a new position which we are creating to build capacity and support our improvement agenda.
The successful candidate will be an outstanding classroom practitioner with a proven track record in staff development and leading on teaching and learning. In addition to taking a leading role in improving pedagogy, the new Assistant Principal will be expected to oversee the progress tracking and intervention programmes for students, to drive up outcomes in core subjects.
This position will include a teaching commitment roughly equivalent to a 50% timetable. The ability to teach mathematics (at least to KS4) would be an advantage.
If you would like to find out more about the college or about this position please contact the Principal, John Morrison, for an informal chat on 01522 775990. We would welcome (indeed encourage) visits to the college so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer. Equally, we understand that this is not always possible and we will not view applications from candidates who have not visited less favourably.
