Preparing students for outstanding STEM careers
Can you create an inspiring experience for our students?
University Technical College South Durham opened in September 2016 and is the first UTC in the North East. With a focus on advanced manufacturing and engineering it is located in the heart of Aycliffe Business Park, County Durham. We provide an outstanding education for 14-19 year olds, encompassing real, relevant workplace experience in partnership with world-class companies.
The chance to create an innovative education establishment is very rare and this is an exciting opportunity to join us early in our development; designing and delivering a very different educational experience for our students. As a key member of a small team you will help shape the IT/Computing and Business curriculum areas, set high expectations and inspire our students through making the subject relevant to the world of work and use of industry-standard equipment.
You are passionate about your subject/s and you are able to link student learning to relevant real life context. Ideally, you will have a proven track record of high quality teaching in both IT and Business Studies at both Level 2 and Level 3, and will be able to demonstrate successful outcomes in both. You’ll also have the ability to build positive relationships with students, staff and parents. An industry background would be an advantage.
Our sponsors, Hitachi Rail Europe, Gestamp Tallent and the University of Sunderland, are committed to creating an outstanding school that will provide a talented young workforce for companies in the North of England. If you have the expertise and commitment to make a life-changing impact on our students then we’d like to hear from you.
We are an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
