Can you create an inspiring engineering experience for our students?


University Technical College South Durham opened in September 2016 and was the first UTC in the North East. With a focus on advanced manufacturing and engineering, it is located at the heart of the Aycliffe Business Park, County Durham. We provide a high quality education for 14-19 year olds, encompassing real, relevant workplace experience in partnership with world-class companies.


The UTC was rated Good by Ofsted in 2019 and has developed a reputation and track record of outstanding destinations for our students.  It has a single focus – to help young people become career and life ready.


Due to successful recruitment in Year 10 and 12, we are looking to appoint an outstanding Engineering teacher to join our Engineering Faculty. The chance to work in an innovative education establishment is rare and this is an exciting opportunity to join us as we continue to expand and develop; designing and delivering high quality engineering and manufacturing courses for our students. As a key member of the Engineering Faculty you will help shape the Engineering curriculum across KS4 and KS5 (including the setting up of our Engineering T Level programme starting in 2022), set high expectations and inspire our students through making the subject relevant to the world of work and use of industry-standard equipment. As UTC South Durham grows, more opportunities will become available to expand our specialist team further, and there may be opportunities for future leadership roles for the right candidate.


You will have a track record of high quality Engineering teaching. You’ll build positive relationships with students, staff and parents. You can demonstrate successful outcomes for your students in relevant subjects at Level 2 and Level 3. An industry background would be an advantage.


Our sponsors, Hitachi Rail Europe, Gestamp Tallent and the University of Sunderland, are committed to creating an outstanding school that will provide a talented young workforce for companies in the North of England. If you have the expertise and commitment to make a life-changing impact on our students then we would like to hear from you.


We are an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
