After a successful start to another academic year following the introduction of our first year 9 cohort, the ENL UTC are happy to announce recent changes to our leadership team, to help continue delivering a high-quality, STEM education for 13-19 year olds around the region.
Both Anesta McCullagh, acting principal and Jennifer Vincent, director of employer engagement, have joined our team bringing with them over 37 years of experience in both education, and employment and skills.
After 16 years in education and a further 10 as a senior leader, Anesta has a wealth of experience working in large secondary schools delivering outcomes for students above the national averages. Since joining the ENL UTC, Anesta has been continuing to expand on the exciting work left by her predecessor Mr Marc Doyle, by inspiring our students through a unique curriculum designed specifically to get them into their chosen career path. Anesta said
“I look forward to continuing the excellent curriculum designed and delivered not just by teachers but by industry partners, using real-life engineering projects to further deliver our specialisms. With industry stating that job openings in engineering roles will represent 17.1% of all vacancies (2.5 million), with just under 10% of these expected to be from expansion demand; it provides our students with an incredible array of career opportunities to work towards.”
With around 25 years of working in employability and skills, experience of working across education in both governor and director roles and most recently, working for The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership to help support businesses to work in schools, Jennifer, brings years of knowledge to the ENL UTC. Excited to work operationally expanding on her experience in education, Jennifer said
“I’m really looking forward to continuing the excellent work of the previous Business Engagement Lead, delivering excellence in education through working with local businesses to inspire and engage our wonderful students.”
These key changes to our leadership team are a positive step in continuing to support the ENL UTC’s growth, as we continue to focus our attention on going above and beyond to support our school, our futures and each other.
