September 2020 start
MPS / UPS Full time, permanent position.
Lincoln UTC does not actually have any staff vacancies … teaching or non-teaching. We are fully staffed and nobody is planning to leave this year.
We are, however, growing in popularity and expect to recruit strongly this coming September. We want to increase the total size of the teaching team so that we have the capacity to meet the anticipated additional demand without compromise and without increasing average class size (currently 22 in Key Stage 4).
We wish to appoint up to four additional teachers … in science, in engineering, in maths and in English.
Lincoln UTC is a unique learning environment. We are a 14 to 18 specialist college for science, technology, engineering and maths. Most visitors to the college assume (wrongly) that we are either a selective or a fee-paying private school. This misunderstanding initially stems from the stunning buildings we are fortunate enough to work in. Our Victorian, listed building at the front is reminiscent of Hogwarts. To the rear of the site, our state of the art laboratories and workshops are housed in an equally impressive, but totally contrasting, £9 million new build. The atmosphere within the college is just as impressive as the physical learning environment. Our students don’t wear uniform. They all (right down to year 10) wear business dress. They look like adults and they behave like adults. This is an unusually calm, purposeful and respectful learning community.
When Ofsted inspected the UTC in June 2019 (two good and three outstanding judgements), they commented on the ‘strong and supportive culture and the exceptionally high staff morale’. Pupil behaviour and conduct were described as ‘impeccable’. They went on to say that, ‘the behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils have exceptionally positive attitudes towards their learning.’
If you would like to find out more about the college or about this position please contact the Principal, John Morrison, for an informal chat on 01522 775990. We would welcome (indeed encourage) visits to the college so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer. Equally, we understand that this is not always possible and we will not view applications from candidates who have not visited less favourably.
Closing date Noon Monday 24th February 2020.
