UTC Leadership Team
Paul Ramage has been appointed as Principal at SGS Berkeley Green UTC. After gaining his BEng at Brunel University he spent five years working in the Automotive Industry, doing research with Warwick Manufacturing Group on using advanced technology to speed up the design process. After gaining an MSc in Engineering Business Management, Paul went into teaching, working in a number of schools in Worcestershire as Head of Physics, Head of Science, Assistant Head in charge of Sixth Form and most recently as Deputy Head of The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre.
Paul describes this new role as his dream job, combining his passion for engineering, computing and science with the privilege of working with young people, helping to form them into the technological leaders of tomorrow.
Paul's role will be to ensure the pursuit of technical and academic excellence at the UTC, inspiring staff and students towards a passion for quality and the development of a 'can-do attitude'.
Andrew Keenan has been appointed as Assistant Principal at the SGS Berkeley Green UTC. Andrew has worked in education for over 10 years at Secondary and FE levels, including several years training apprentices for QinetiQ. He has over 15 years industry experience in aerospace, where he has worked on multiple aircraft and projects. His most recent post was as head of Engineering at SGS College where, for the last 18 months, he has also been involved in developing the UTC.
As well as teaching Engineering and Science, part of his role will be engaging with employer partners to ensure that the curriculum is relevant, as well as developing employer projects and supported internships.
"From day one I have been excited by the opportunities this new type of education will give our students. The close relationships between ourselves, SGS College, the University of Gloucestershire and our employer partners means that students leaving us will be best prepared for their next steps, whether that is a degree, apprenticeship or straight into industry. I am delighted that I will be involved in supporting our students on that exciting journey."
