The Role

Our team of 4 Science teachers needs to increase as student numbers are again oversubscribed in KS4 at GPUTC. We want people to join us who are keen to make the connections between Science and our teaching specialisms of Engineering and the Built Environment. 

You might be a Physicist...but you don't have to be! The ability to teach multiple Science subjects at KS4 is paramount. Your background will be in Secondary Schools and/or FE Colleges but the ability to be able to manage the learning of students across the ability range is required. The opportunity to teach at post-16 will be available to a suitably experienced candidate.

You will be a small group mentor in addition to your teaching role. 

The College

Greater Peterborough University Technical College (GPUTC) is an Engineering and Built Environment specialist school for students aged 14 – 19. Located in Peterborough city centre, the £12 million school opened in September 2016 to help create the city’s engineers, designers, architects and construction specialists of the future. UTC’s are secondary schools for young people that are sponsored by a university and local employers. They were set up by the government to encourage young people to study technical subjects and to give them the opportunity to learn the skills that employers are looking for. 

Students can join GPUTC in year 10 and study engineering and the built environment (made up of architecture, design, surveying and construction) along with their core GCSE subjects. Students are also given the opportunity to pick from employability GCSEs such as computer science, business studies or art and design.  In year 12 students commit themselves to Level III qualifications in Engineering or the Built Environment and supplement their studies with one or two A-levels. 

GPUTC's employer and education sponsors are represented on the governing body and work closely with the school and students.
