Science Teacher at the Lincoln University Technical College
January 2018 start
Full time, permanent position.
We would be willing to consider offering this as a part time position for a suitably strong candidate who did not want full time hours.
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. Finding the right person to join our team is more important than the subject specialism that he or she offers. We are fortunate that within the science team we have specialists in all three disciplines and would be able to adjust our timetables to meet the needs of the students. There are six teachers in the science faculty. At present we don’t have a second in faculty. There is a possibility of this position coming with a TLR for a suitably experienced candidate.
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.
Completed application forms should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org
