Salary £72,000 -
has arisen for an experienced leader to join the senior leadership team at
Lincoln UTC. Teaching and leadership opportunities don’t often come up at the
UTC. Staff morale is uncommonly high and staff turnover is uncommonly low. This
vacancy is due to the planned retirement of one of the current leadership team,
in September 2024. The Governors would, ideally, like the successful candidate
to start at Easter, while the current Vice Principal is still in role, to
support a smooth transition and to allow him or her to understand all those
things which make the college different and special.
Lincoln UTC is a unique learning environment. We are a 14 to 18 specialist college for science, technology, engineering, and maths. Most visitors to the college assume (wrongly) that we are either a selective or a fee-paying private school. This misunderstanding initially stems from the stunning buildings we are fortunate enough to work in. Our Victorian, listed building at the front is reminiscent of Hogwarts. To the rear of the site, our state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops are housed in an equally impressive, but totally contrasting, £9 million new build. The atmosphere within the college is just as impressive as the physical learning environment. Our students don’t wear uniform. They all (right down to Year 10) wear business dress. They look like adults and they behave like adults. This is an unusually calm, purposeful, and respectful learning community.
Lincoln UTC is much smaller than most schools with 400 students, 26 teaching staff and a senior leadership team of just 3 people. The college is always over-subscribed but has no desire to grow beyond its current numbers. As a specialist college we offer fewer subjects than most schools (excelling in the ones that we do) but we do offer students an exceptionally wide range of other (work-related) experiences and opportunities.
When Ofsted inspected the UTC in June 2019 (two good and three outstanding judgements), they commented on the ‘strong and supportive culture and the exceptionally high staff morale’. Pupil behaviour and conduct were described as ‘impeccable’. They went on to say that, ‘the behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils have exceptionally positive attitudes towards their learning.’
If you would like to find out more about the college or about this position please contact the Principal, John Morrison, for an informal chat on 01522 775990. We would welcome (indeed encourage) visits to the college so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer. Equally, we understand that this is not always possible and we will not view applications from candidates who have not visited less favourably.
