The only STEM specialist school in Peterborough; you will be warmly welcomed into our relatively small teacher community, responsible for delivering Computer Science to the next and best generation of Programmers, Network Engineers and those with an absolute passion for computers.

Unlike other mainstream schools you will utilize the skill set of our amazing industry Sponsors to truly bring the curriculum to life, as well as maintain currency and relevance to your subject.

This is a unique opportunity to teach Computer Science in a school dedicated to academic, technical and practical education.  

We are inviting applications from passionate and experienced individuals who are great in the classroom/computer lab and keen to make a significant contribution to the development of the school. Enthusiastic for the UTC concept, fully supportive of our vision, you'll be inspirational, able to tackle problems head on and have the communication skills and emotional intelligence to engage with all the issues involved in developing a new school. 

There will be the opportunity for the successful candidate to not only teach GCSE and A-level Computer Science, but also to contribute your specialism to our high profile and high achieving Level 3 Engineering programme. An academic background in Computer Science/Electronics  will serve you very well in this role, but we also have the flexibility to appoint people directly from FE and industry who do not have a 'traditional' teaching background.

Our sponsors recognise that these are demanding roles in a pioneering organisation and we are committed to supporting staff as effectively as possible.

All appointments are subject to satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check. GPUTC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
