A JOB advert has gone out for the principal of Daventry’s university technical college (UTC).

The advert for the principal designate states the salary is in the region of £80,000 plus up to 15 per cent performance related bonus and benefits.

The college will be built on the old pitch and putt land off Ashby Road. It will provide academic and skilled vocational training for 600 pupils aged 14 to 19 from across the area.

The curriculum is being worked on by the UTC partners, including Moulton College which is taking the lead, and local businesses.

The advert states: “Do you have the drive, determination and creativity to lead our new vision for education?

“Can you build profitable relationships with industry, education providers and strengthen links with our community with your credibility and influencing skills?”

Meetings are currently going on with developers to determine what the plans for the buildings will be ahead of a planning application in the near future.

The aim is to have the first pupils start in September 2013, which means building work has to start around July.
