How do I say Jefe de UTP in English?
UTP means Unidad Tecnico Pedagogica
It's not clear what kind of an organization a UTP is. Can you describe it for us?
A jefe de UTP is the person in charge of the organization of a school, the subjects, the hours of the teachers, the time table etc
In elementary and secondary schools in the U.S., a principal or vice-principal is usually the person who decides all of these things. There usually isn't a person, separate from the school's principal (director) that does these tasks. If "prinicpal" doesn't seem appropriate to you, other options might be head teacher or lead teacher. Hope they help.
In chilean's school, "Jefe de UTP" (Unidad Técnico Pedagógica) is the person who makes sure teachers are doing their jobs professionally...
What's the name of that possition or job in english?
In England it is known as the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted)
In Scotland it is known as Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIE)
I think it will have many names depending on the country you mean.
In that case, it'd be useful a literal translation: Pedagogical-Technical Unit
or Curricular Unit/Department
Separate names with a comma.
