What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a dynamic individual to join our collaborative Humanities department in the role ofTeacher of Geography. The successful candidatewill be passionate about delivering a geography curriculum which supports our vision of developing STEM professionals for the future global market. At The Leigh UTC, we believe our team ethos is the most important aspect of our success, making this a great opportunity for a teacher who wants the opportunity to be innovative and collaborative in a supportive environment. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to shape an engaging and challenging curriculum as we continue on our journey to produce an exceptional curriculum that serves the pupils in our community.

We aim to develop learners who are not only confident in subject knowledge but strong communicators, thinkers and inquirers. We want toinspire our students to seek an understanding of the wider world around them in Geography. The Leigh UTC is a STEM-based provision, but our learners enjoy and value their studies in Humanities and see the relevance of the subject to the rest of their studies and to their futures.

The Coordinator of Learning for Humanities is an experienced practitioner who is keen to support people to develop their practice as well as collaborate to make the curriculum an exciting and inspiring journey for the pupils at The Leigh UTC. This supportive environment makes this a great opportunity for an Early Career Teacher (ECT) to develop; but anyone with a strong interest in teaching and learning will love the atmosphere in this department!
