This is an exceptional opportunity to become part of the Learning Support Department at Aylesbury UTC. We need to increase our support capacity as our student numbers are rapidly increasing. We are looking for someone to support students to achieve the best possible outcomes in the core subjects and our specialist pathways. For the right candidate, we are also keen to provide opportunities to lead another aspect of the school such as: attendance; SEND administration; pastoral support. An interest in additional areas should be made clear on application.


The Merchant Taylors’ Oxfordshire Academy Trust is a multi-academy trust currently consisting of Wallingford School, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Primary School and Aylesbury UTC. The schools are successful, popular and are rooted at the heart of their local communities.

We are privileged to carry the Merchant Taylors’ name and value our relationship with the Company. Their interest, benevolence and engagement with education resonate with our ethos as a Trust.

Our schools are about academic achievement but also personal development and opportunity so that our young people leave us equipped with the skills and experiences which will enable them to thrive. This vision is understood by all members of our school communities and lies at the heart of our ethos.

Our function as a multi-academy trust is to encourage collaboration, innovation and professional development within structures which ensure that our focus is on ensuring that the young people in our schools have the very best possible provision. We work across and within our schools, recognising that the best school-to-school support is deep, embedded and impactful.

Our vision and values are rooted within a belief that every young person is capable of being successful regardless of background, prior attainment or previous school experience.

We believe that schools should serve their local communities and be able to offer the breadth and depth of educational experience which young people deserve in the 21st Century. For us school is about achievement and progress but it is also about supporting our young people to become rounded, well-adjusted young adults ready to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives and to play their part in society.

The approach taken by Merchant Taylors’ Oxfordshire Academy Trust (MTOAT) is to focus on delivering a high quality of education in a small number of academies. This strategy enables the MTOAT leadership team to place the maximum possible focus on each academy as it joins the MAT and is, we believe, particularly well-suited to helping struggling schools to address the issues they face.

Aylesbury University Technical College is a unique school offering the very best of technical education with outstanding links to our specialist employer sponsors. Our UTC specialises in Computing / Digital, Health Care / Social Care and Building Studies (final cohort). Our curriculum embraces the core subjects at Key Stage 4 coupled with an innovative focus on our specialisms which is then further developed into our Sixth Form.

This is a very happy and supportive environment, with great relationships throughout the school. We place an especially high value on the development of colleagues and have an extensive professional development programme. There are many opportunities for staff to work collaboratively across the school and our Trust (Merchant Taylors’ Oxfordshire Academy Trust) and the successful candidate will be encouraged to take these where appropriate.

All successful candidates will be subject to a child protection vetting process along with all other relevant employment checks.
