Scarborough UTC

SBORO UTC LOGO 2023_COL_BLACK“A school of opportunity”; “Leaders and staff describe the school as a family. They feel mutually supported and value the attention leaders give them. Staff morale is extremely high.” “Behaviour is calm and respectful. In lessons, pupils are attentive and want to learn.” Ofsted 2022 

Scarborough UTC underwent a ‘good’ Ofsted Inspection in November 2022. There has been a transformational change since the previous pre-covid inspection, it is a growing college, hence the creation of these posts. We would encourage any applicant to have read the inspection report, which is the rightful and accurate summation of considerable work by the college staff.


Why Work for Us

Welcome from the Headteacher

UTC 00163Dear Applicant 

Thank you for your interest in teaching at Scarborough University Technical College (SUTC).

Our students will become the new generation of engineers, scientists, designers, technicians and health care workers, contributing towards Scarborough’s continuing transformation into a centre of excellence for innovation. 

There are 48 UTC across the country – they are not school, they are not bound by the DFE terms in regard to National curriculum and as such are able to run innovative deep learning in technical specialisms. 2022 was a particular year of strength for the college; we were World Bronze Champions in the F1 for schools competition, we were the number 1 UTC in the country in terms of English progress and were recognised as strongly Good across the board by Ofsted. Any applicant would be wise to view the national UTC website and our own site at to get a real flavour of how this provision differs to mainstream school.
