Teacher Profile: Marc Doyle 2> By | Teacher Profiles | No Comments

What inspired you to become a teacher?

I come from a family of teachers and am now the fourth generation of my family to join the profession. I saw how much satisfaction my dad got from work and wanted to do the same job as him.

What did your degree specialise in, and why did you choose that subject?

I got a degree in maths and secondary education from Leeds University. Maths was always my favourite subject at school because I was good at it

What is the most exciting STEM project you’ve worked on?

When I was Head of Maths in Dewsbury, I led a ‘Bridge Project’ with Sheffield University. Students were given the opportunity to become a business who were building a new bridge over the Suez Canal and the project involved planning, paying for and constricting the bridge.

Do you do anything interesting or exciting outside of work hours?

I have a Playstation, do a lot of walking and cycling in the countryside around my home and pretend I am good at DIY.

Why did you choose to join the UTC? 

I was blown away by the possibilities. The business links and the quality of the facilities made me really excited about the success we could make of the school.

What are you most looking forward to at the UTC?

When we are full of students and outstanding in all areas, I will be happy

Today, the Rt. Hon Nicky Morgan MP, visited Humber UTC to celebrate Women in Engineering day. The day was a very positive and successful celebration, filled with opportunities for networking and discussion, supporting equality, diversity and women in the engineering industry.
Humber UTC was also delighted to welcome Charles Parker, CEO of Baker Dearing Educational Trust, eighty-five female engineers, specialists, and representatives from some of our industry partners, such as Phillips 66, Cristal, Jacobs and ECITB to name but a few.
The day started with a speech from Principal, Marc Doyle before lunch was served, offering time for networking and new partnerships to be forged. Charles Parker then delivered a speech about the UTC movement, and how they are a necessity for the future of the engineering sector in the United Kingdom.
The keynote speech was then delivered by Nicky Morgan MP for Loughborough since 2010, and who was the Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities 2014-2016.
