Closing date:

Greater Peterborough UTCPeterborough

Date posted:
Start date: ASAP
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: National Rates plus specialist allowance
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes


You'll be part of the Engineering Team in a UTC where the subject is our focus and specialism with the department making up 25% of the staff group. All of our 200 KS4 students study Engineering and nearly 100 of our KS5 learners have it as the most significant part of their curriculum. We are looking for individuals to be able to teach across the spectrum of the curriculum but do not have to have experience in all areas. We would welcome applications from those with specialist skills in CADCAM, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Workshop skills or Product Design.


Greater Peterborough UTC opened in September 2016 with 140 students aged 14-18. Doubling in size this year, we are over-subscribed for Year 10 again in 2018 and so we are seeking to increase our teaching team so we can continue to provide high-quality academic, technical and practical education.  

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/workshop and keen to make a significant contribution to the development of the school. We would also strongly urge NQTs to apply to bring a new and dynamic approach to the classroom and workshop.

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.

Our sponsors recognise that these are demanding roles in a pioneering organisation and we are committed to supporting staff as effectively as possible.


Use either our own Application Form (available on our website) or the TES standard application. You are welcome to come and visit us before applying or to contact the Engineering lead teachers.
