Job Summary: We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Business Studies and ICT from September 2024

Students at The Leigh UTC “are proud to attend a school that is realising its vision of ‘developing STEM professionals for the future global market’” Ofsted, 2022.

The Leigh UTC opened in 2014 with state-of-the-art facilities. We are the first UTC to join a multi-academy trust, to become an IB World School, to be built in Kent and among the first Academies in the UK to offer T-levels and Level 3 and 4 apprenticeships. We were the first UTC to open from Year 7 and have been oversubscribed in all year groups ever since, now serving over 800 young people from Kent, Medway and South-East London. We are a pioneering Academy and are looking for like-minded, ambitious people who can make great things happen for the young people in our community.

We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Business Studies and ICT from September 2024. You will be required to keep abreast of educational theory, to inform your teaching, understand the value of knowledge in the curriculum and the ability to apply that knowledge in a contextual manner.

This is a truly fantastic opportunity for a passionate teacher to become part of a well-established, highly collaborative and successful academy as we are confident that our teaching and support teams, our facilities and most importantly our students will inspire you.

As an IB World School, applicants that have previous experience in delivering IB are of strong interest to us, but please note that this criterion is not essential as training will be offered.

We’re keen to hear from you if you are:

An excellent teacher with an outstanding record
Collaborative, building strong professional relationships
Able to motivate and inspire students to achieve their full potential
Energetic and have a ‘can-do’ attitude
Someone who has a measurable impact as an individual teacher and throughout the school
Applications are welcomed from both experienced teachers and strong Early Career Teachers (ECTs). The Leigh UTC is a very special place to work and pre-application visits or phone calls are both encouraged and welcomed. If you would like to arrange to discuss the role with a member of the team, please contact Elene Redelinghuys (Recruitment Advisor) on elene.redelinghuys@latrust.org.uk.



Why work for us? At The Leigh UTC, we create opportunities for meaningful collaboration for staff, we provide a respectful working environment and we encourage innovation from every member of our team. Our Principal, Governors, teaching and support staff believe wholeheartedly in creating opportunities for lifelong success for our young people and believe that exam success is just one aspect in achieving this. We deliver amazing experiences for students whilst not compromising on outcomes. Our teamwork allows us to be greater than the sum of our parts – join us to achieve more than you thought possible.

Curriculum is king and we do things a little differently to other schools or colleges because we believe the most effective way to educate our students is to make our learning more hands-on. With the International Baccalaureate Middle Years programme (MYP) at KS3, GCSEs at KS4, and A-levels, T-levels and the International Baccalaureate Careers Programme (IBCP) at KS5, our ambitious curriculum offer caters for choice, leading the vast majority of students into STEM-related careers or courses.
