Meet the Transition Team

Gemma Laing

Director of Pastoral Care Years 7-11

My role is to have strategic oversight of the pastoral care and structure at UTC Plymouth. I have worked in education for over 13 years and pastoral care has always been my passion. For me, it is important that no child is left behind and that each and every student is supported and afforded the best opportunities to succeed

Nathan Tills

Pastoral Lead Coordinator for Year 7

My role within UTC is to oversee the year 7 students on a day to day basis, making sure that they settle into the school environment and supporting them to achieve the best they can. I am very excited to have our first ever year 7 group and I am looking forward to meeting you all very soon.

Natasha Ive

Pastoral Lead Transition and Communications for Year 7

My role at UTC is to make sure students transition from primary to UTC is smooth and successful. I will also be supporting students on a day to day basis making sure that they are equipped for the day ahead and have access to everything they need to help them develop themselves at UTC.

Esther Knight

Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator

My role as part of the transition team is to make sure that when your child transitions to us from another setting we fully understand your child's needs and we have a plan in place for your child's arrival. I have nearly twenty years experience in Education and recently completed a Masters in Special Educational Needs, I hope I can share this experience with you and do the best for your child's academic and wellbeing needs at the UTC.

Jasmin Chapple

My role within UTC is to work closely with the year team and teaching staff to keep students safe with UTC and the local community. I will also work alongside the SENCO to help put support in place for students who may need it.
