Opened in September 2016, the school specialises in engineering and STEM for 14-19 year olds, offering a non-traditional education built on high academic standards, learning in a technical context, close links to employer and university partners and a professional environment making use of outstanding facilities and resources.

As a UTC, we offer GCSEs and A levels, and the opportunity for our students to learn valuable technical and employability skills. Our education plan ensures our students are on track to make outstanding progress, reach high levels of academic attainment and develop the skills essential for career success.

We will move into state of the art purpose-built new buildings in September 2017 and have access to outstanding specialist equipment and facilities including advanced computing, 3D print and robotics. Our students are fully supported through high-quality, personalised pastoral care.

This role is for a technician able to deliver high quality support for the technical curriculum within a strong team and will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to provide effective management of a technical team as well as support highly motivated, technically-minded young people.

The successful candidate will be part of a close-knit, small team initially and will be required to be highly adaptable and flexible.  Alongside this, the UTC offers first class career development opportunities, excellent CPD, wonderful students, an innovative education vision, great links to industry and higher education and leading-edge facilities.
