We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Engineering to this Outstanding University Technical College (UTC). The role is part of the planned staff expansion of the teaching staff at the UTC as we grow from our current 450 Students 2017 to 560 in September 2019 (this represents the capacity of the UTC). 

The UTC opened in September 2013 in a newly refurbished building, which replicates a business environment with state-of–the-art facilities and judged by Ofsted as Outstanding in every category in May 2015 in only its second year of operation. This is not only a relatively new school but also a new approach to educating 14-19 year olds; which is possibly the most exciting change in the education landscape in decades.  

All students at UTC Reading specialise in either Engineering or Computer Science; at 14 they will also study a broad and balanced curriculum. At Post 16, the curriculum becomes more specialist with A levels in Physics, Computing, Further Computing, Computer Science, Product Design, Business, Biology and Chemistry being studied alongside their specialist BTEC Level 3 course in Engineering or Computing with a handful of globally recognised qualifications to prepare them for the workplace. At capacity, we will be educating 560 students who will all have a passion for Engineering or Computer Science; it is a truly inspirational environment. 

This role will provide you with: 

• Unparalleled professional development including access to a full suite of professional qualifications including MOS, MTA and AutoDesk

• Focussed teaching - only teaching KS4 and KS5 classes 

• Small class sizes 

• Passionate students 

• Opportunities for career development as the UTC grows

• An opportunity to be at the forefront of STEM education

If you believe this is an environment in which you can thrive, develop and substantially contribute to the exciting future of UTC Reading, then you are encouraged to explore further by contacting Andrew Thacker, Director of Engineering, via andrew.thacker@utcreading.org.uk for a more detailed discussion, if required.

Completed application forms and an enclosed supporting letter should be emailed no later than midday on Wednesday 15th November 2017 to jessica.bryant@utcreading.org.uk

Interviews are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 22nd November 2017.

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
