UTC Starts Staff Recruitment Programme

Derby Manufacturing University Technical College is advertising for a Vice Principal in the first stage of its programme to recruit academic and vocational teaching staff ahead of the opening in September 2015.

It is planned to have the senior position in post by Easter.

Meanwhile, all the steel works have been completed on the new purpose-built UTC campus on Pride Park with building work due to be completed by August 2015.

Contractors BAM Construct UK are building the £8 million centre which has been designed by Maber Architects.

Applications for the first year ten and 12 students at the UTC will close on January 28 2015 and prospective students are invited to an information session on Saturday January 10 at Derby College’s nearby Johnson Building on Locomotive Way to find out more about the work of the UTC.

Derby Manufacturing UTC is a partnership between Derby College, the University of Derby, Rolls-Royce Plc, Bombardier, Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, Derby City Council and a wide range of supply chain employers working in local manufacturing and engineering.

The UTC will have capacity for up to 600 young people aged 14 to 19. They will study core GCSE’s, A levels and engineering qualifications enhanced by project based learning, work placements, employer site visits and industry expert lectures.

Principal Designate Philip Morris said: “With the construction work progressing at a pace, we are now inviting applications for the Vice Principal who will be instrumental in building the teaching and support staff team.

“Applications are going well for the UTC and we look forward to welcoming the first students next September.”
