Teacher of English (NQT’s welcomed) – Scarborough UTC

MPS/UPS (Recruitment and retention and relocation package of up to £8000 available for the right candidate)


‘With strong links to industry we deliver an innovative blend of technical, practical and academic learning – both to our staff and our students’


Scarborough UTC is a growing school (14-19 admitting up to 150 students in Year 10 and Year 12 each year) and we moved into our brand new building in September 2016. As a University Technical College we offer wide range of opportunities, that include Combined Cadet Force (CCF), which is delivered in partnership with the Navy, Cyber Security, engineering and project based learning and our flagship Career Development Programme for our Sixth Form students.

Being the coastal hub for engineering and physics and working closely in partnership with our coastal secondary schools and fellow University Technical Colleges across England we are ambitious, innovative and dedicated to the young people of Scarborough and surrounding coastal areas.

In 2018 we welcomed our new Principal and we have over hauled our finance, pastoral systems, curriculum and teaching and learning. We have built a staff team of key support and teaching practitioners who are proud to work at our University Technical College.

Our staff are our greatest resource and we have invested in both our teaching and support staff teams which has ensured that educational standards are improving strongly.
