Governor with significant (& recent) secondary school experience

The Leeds Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering University Technical College (UTC Leeds) is a government-funded college for pupils aged 14-19 years old, who have a particular interest in mathematics, science, computing and engineering. At UTC Leeds academic, technical and practical education are valued equally. As well as being taught in more familiar classes and groups, students will learn through challenging and relevant science and engineering research projects which model more closely the professional or industrial experience.

UTC Leeds is designed to be accessible to students throughout the Leeds City Region who share an interest in pursuing a career in the field of advanced applied science, engineering or manufacturing. In terms of gaining a place in the UTC, the distance that such young people live from the UTC Leeds campus is not a barrier to entry. Our Admissions Policy reflects these aspirations.

The UTC opened in September 2016 and has a capacity of 600 pupils. At the October 2021 school census, the pupil roll was 391 students with active plans to further drive up those numbers.

The Governing Board is looking to strengthen the team with an individual who has significant (and recent) secondary education experience. This position has been opened due to a retirement from the Board in July 2022. The Governor will be keen to contribute in many areas of the UTC Leeds board activities and is looking to help to further our drive to improve educational outcomes for our students.

The Governing Board is made up of a minimum of 50% business partner representatives to ensure our focus on work ready students continues to drive success for our pupils. The successful governor will join a Board that is passionate about the success of UTC Leeds and driving further brand awareness in the region.

Ideally, we would like our new governor to start on 1st September 2022 (can be earlier if available). Induction training will be provided.

We look forward to hearing from you.
