What the school offers its staff

UTCN exists to develop the next generation of engineers and science professionals and, with a fabulous £10m building and £1.3m of specialist equipment, that’s exactly what we have achieved. We have been open seven years and we are already one of the top performing UTCs in the country. We have a specialism in engineering, but we also cater for 14-19 age students with interests in Science, Computing and Mathematics. UTCN is heavily oversubscribed for 2022 entry and was graded ‘Good’ across all areas by OFSTED in May 2019.

The Engineering Department at UTCN is extremely well resourced: we have a suite of manual lathes and milling machines, 3D printers, laser cutter, Hass CNC machines, welding equipment, virtual welders, and an F1 in Schools test track, to list but a small selection. The Engineering Department currently has 5 teaching staff, 1 Learning Support Assistant and 1 technician. As student numbers grow, we anticipate that staffing in this area will increase further. The department staff have a wide range of teaching and industrial backgrounds which provides a team of experienced, hardworking and supportive colleagues. This role requires the candidate to teach GCSE or A level Mathematics.
