You will help shape the development of engineering in a brand new and unique University Technical College that is for high achievers. The Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC will open in September 2017 in the heart of London’s West End. It will be a flagship for technical skills education offering 550 young people between 14 and 19, the opportunity to join a new generation of engineers, designers, technicians and project managers to build Britain’s infrastructure.
Do you want to work in a forward thinking and dynamic college where staff professional development is at the heart of our work?

The post is suitable for an experienced teacher or an NQT.
