Are you dedicated, innovative and driven to support young people develop the skills they need to access real world, high end opportunities? Then we want to hear from you! We are looking to appoint in our fast paced, rapidly growing STEAM Specialist College. With excellent progression routes, personalised development programmes and a wholly child centred approach, UTC Plymouth is an exciting and invested place to be.’

You will contribute to raising standards of student attainment; contribute to the assessment and quality assurance of our vocational qualifications, share and support the school’s responsibility to provide and monitor opportunities for personal and academic growth and facilitate a learning experience that allows individuals to fulfil their potential.

The department, recently rated as Good by Ofsted, is at the forefront of Design and Engineering education, with a focus  upon Design and Technology at Key Stage 3 and 4, and dual specialisms of Design Engineering and Advanced Manufacture at Key Stage 5. We have an excellent track record of progression into the STEAM workforce as well as to Engineering programmes of study at University. As a UTC we have a clear mandate to work directly with our employer/industry partners, to provide a World Class technical education, and develop the aspirations, knowledge and skills to enter this dynamic sector. As such our facilities are locally second to none. The successful candidate will be either a Design and Technology or Engineering teacher, with experience of teaching to Key Stage 4/level 2 Design and Technology or Engineering qualifications.

You will understand the scope of the STEAM agenda and its importance within the economic landscape at a local level. You are tenacious, enjoy a challenge and are dedicated to your own professional development as a means of providing the best to our young people and our team. You will understand the importance of “soft skill” development as a means of developing the whole individual alongside a strong drive for academic excellence. You are a creative, forward thinker who understands the vital necessity to provide young people with high aspirations and a clear pathway for life beyond the college.

This role involves understanding the needs of the students and adopting/developing an appropriate curriculum/interventions or pastoral programme in your area. You will need to be able to establish a safe, purposeful and stimulating environment for students, rooted in mutual respect and establish a framework for discipline with a range of strategies, using praise, sanctions and rewards consistently and fairly.
