With the promotion of the current postholder, we now need an excellent English teacher who can lead a growing department, develop whole school literacy and support colleagues in MFL and Humanities.
UTC Norfolk is a 14-19 school with a fantastic 21st century learning space, £1.3m of specialist equipment and a burning ambition: to develop tomorrows engineering and technology specialists. To do this, we aim to ensure that our students have the skills, qualifications and experience to go to university or to take-up skilled employment. Now in our third year, we have done just this. 100% of our class of 2016 are now studying at top universities, are employed or are working in well paid apprenticeships. Prospects for our 2017 cohort look even better!
English and literacy are, of course, fundamental to students futures. At the UTC, we see this, not just in terms of a qualification, but as a means of increasing students employability. The English department will grow and develop over the next three years and additional responsibilities will be available to the right candidate, both now and in the future.
If you are an excellent teacher who has the:
Capability to lead on the teaching of English and literacy
Ability to deliver excellent results
Capacity for hard work
Passion to enthuse young people about English
Commitment to play a whole school role
Determination to ensure UTCN is the top provider of its type in the country
Then we want to hear from you! For further information and to apply, please see our website
