UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, 2 Old Hall Road, Sheffield, S9 3TU
5:30pm - 7:15pm, Wed 15 February 2017
A big vision lies at the heart of UTC Sheffield – to develop the next generation of Britain’s creatives, engineers, designers, technicians and scientists, who together will help to solve the global challenges that lie ahead of us and revive a strong economy.
These highly skilled young people will be the innovators and enterprising employees of tomorrow, helping to create new industries and providing much-needed talent for existing businesses and public services in our region and beyond.
Our aim is to deliver an outstanding educational experience grounded in real, relevant workplace practice. Partnerships with world-class employers, colleges and universities give our students a unique start to their future careers.
This vision has already been proven at UTC Sheffield City Centre which was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2016. Building on this success, a second UTC is opening this September at the Olympic Legacy Park.
In both campuses, UTC Sheffield provides education today for the jobs of tomorrow.
I am proud to lead the committed team of professionals who have made the UTC vision for careers-led education a reality and look forward to working with all our staff, students, parents and partners on the exciting journey ahead.
Learning connected to the world of work
Over 50 top employers and Sheffield’s two major universities work with UTC Sheffield. This partnership, together with the employer-led curriculum and approach, enables students to develop their employability skills such as problem-solving, time-management, organisation, teamwork, leadership and communication.
"At my old school we didn’t do any technology; coming here has proved to me that I can do it and given me opportunities I wouldn’t have had elsewhere. The freedom here lets you work in a style that suites you, it helps you to learn and proceed onwards."
Hannah, Engineering, Y12
"The best this about being here is the atmosphere; it’s very professional, if you’re going to act like an adult then you’ll be treated like one."
Joshua, Engineering, Y12
"The students at the UTC come here to get ahead. Most students are like me, they don’t want to mess about. Everyone wants to succeed, so it makes it much easier to concentrate on learning. I feel more secure here, especially about ultimately getting a job.”
Anjali, Engineering, Y12
“Moving to the UTC definitely lived up to expectations. I enjoyed the fact that you get contact with employers, and that they set and give feedback on our coursework. It gives you valuable industry knowledge and confidence in your chosen specialism.”
Rebecca, Former Creative and Digital Student
"At the UTC I’ve worked with Rolls-Royce, which was really good! Their employees came in and spoke to us, and it gave us an accurate insight into what they do and what we can do in Engineering."
