An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Elutec UTC as a Product Design teacher. Successful applicants will be enthusiastic team players. There will be opportunities for rapid career development within the department for the right candidate. 

Elutec UTC

Elutec – the 14-19 University Technical College for East London - opened in September 2014 and aims to be the leading engineering and manufacturing UTC in the UK. Elutec is housed in an impressive new building in Barking and Dagenham, surrounded by a Business and Science Park which is soon to be joined by an exciting new film studio complex. The school has excellent transport links, with Dagenham East tube station a short walk away. 

The school’s exceptional sponsors include Ford Motor Company, one of the world's foremost design, engineering and manufacturing enterprises and the Faculty of Engineering at University College London (UCL), ranked as one of the top 20 “super-elite” universities in the world (especially in Elutec's specialist areas of manufacturing and engineering). Elutec is also sponsored by The Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (CEME) in Havering, where Elutec was originally located and by Prospects College of Advanced Technology, one of the country's leading education providers of work-force development needs. 

Elutec aims to offer learners and employers an outstanding solution to current skills shortages. Our vision is that our pupils will stand out from the crowd and will be educated and coached to win the technical jobs that local employers desperately need to fill. In those jobs they will stand out as competent young engineering and manufacturing technicians. When they pursue further qualifications, they will stand out as those precious few who "know how to make things" as well as design, test, simulate and research them. In summary, our pupils will be the engineering and manufacturing specialists that employers need to grow their businesses and to develop the local economy.
