Start date: 01/01/2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

 This is a fairly unique opportunity to teach Computer Science in a school dedicated to academic, technical and practical education.  Greater Peterborough UTC opened in September 2016 with 140 students aged 14-18. Doubling in size this year, we still seeking to increase our teaching team so we can continue to provide high-quality academic and technical education.   

UTCs are unique working environments and we would be happy to share ours with you if you want to visit us before applying. 

GPUTC specialises in Engineering and the Built Environment and is programmed to continue growing to 400 students by 2019. 

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 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.
