The Trustees of SGS Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Principal to lead the SGS Berkeley Green UTC, a University Technical College specialising in Advanced Manufacturing and Digital Technologies, including Cyber Security, at Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park, Berkeley Green, Gloucestershire, for young people aged 14-19.

The UTC is planned to open in September 2017, in purpose built, state-of-the art buildings.

We provide children and young people with a broad and challenging curriculum delivered by high-quality teachers supported by leading experts from local employers.

We are located close to the SGS Engineering Skills Centre and University of Gloucestershire's Cyber Security Centre, both at the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park. Our curriculum will be designed to develop expertise and knowledge about our specialisms whilst providing students with an opportunity to access both the English Baccalaureate and the Technical Baccalaureate.

Building a new learning environment from scratch is not without its challenges - but the rewards are enormous!

We have an interim project team in place and we will look to you to appoint and lead the team of teachers and support staff and to establish the school on secure and firm foundations. Our ambition and commitment is to deliver an outstanding level of education and care.

Are you attracted to the idea of being part of something to which you can make a significant and unique contribution?

Do you thrive when you have the ability to design and build your own professional environment rather than inheriting and maintaining what is already in existence?

If so, and you are have a proven track record of outstanding leadership, we want to hear from you.

Please visit our website: for more information about the UTC and how to apply.
