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. It provides 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 English curriculum area, set high expectations and inspire our students through making the subject relevant to the world of work. For the right candidate, there will be the opportunity to take responsibility for developing literacy across the curriculum.
You are passionate about your subject and you are able to link student learning to relevant real life context. You will have a proven track record of high quality English teaching at GCSE and you’ll be able to demonstrate successful outcomes for your students across GCSE English Language and Literature. You’ll also have the ability to build positive relationships with students, staff and parents.
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.
