Preparing students to be Career and Life Ready for outstanding STEM careers. Can you lead our students to success?

University Technical College South Durham provides an innovative education for 14-19 year olds, encompassing real, relevant workplace experience in partnership with world-class companies. With a focus on STEM, particularly advanced manufacturing and engineering, it is located on Aycliffe Business Park, County Durham and is expanding rapidly.

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.

Physics is a vital part of our offer. It is a core subject at KS4 and we have a large uptake in A Level Physics at KS5 as it supports our STEM focus. We are looking to appoint an outstanding Physics teacher to join our teaching team. 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 learning experiences for our students. As a key member of the UTC team you will help shape our KS4 and KS5 curricula, set high expectations and inspire our students through making the subject engaging and relevant. You’ll also build positive relationships with students, staff and parents and you’ll be able to demonstrate successful outcomes for your students at GCSE and A Level.

Our sponsors, Hitachi Rail, 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 lifechanging impact on our students then we would like to hear from you.
