What the school offers its staff

Staff – teaching, support and associate – are happy at Aylesbury UTC. Professional development is important to us and our programme is varied but also bespoke to support individual needs and priorities. Our annual two-day Teaching and Learning Conference is probably the highlight of this programme. We embrace the inevitable challenges of working with young people and staff are supportive of each other. It is an excellent place to work and we are committed to staff wellbeing and a healthy work-life balance for all our colleagues.

This post would be ideal for someone with experience of teaching Science to achieve strong outcomes for the students they serve but we also recognise that it may be right for someone who is looking to make a mark in the early stages of their career.

Facilities:

Aylesbury UTC has a well-resourced Science department. This includes 3 dedicated Science labs, a smaller theory workshop room and a technician’s room with practical equipment. Students and staff look after these resources very well knowing that they play a key part in the successful completion of courses. Our students also have the opportunity to visit industry settings in the UK and abroad.

Team:

The successful applicant would be part of a two-teacher department, but this is likely to grow with increasing student numbers in the coming years. We also have a Science Technician who is integral to the efficient running of the department.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.
