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.

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.
“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, Creative and Digital
I really enjoy solving problems and making things work, and that’s what appeals to me about engineering and maths. It was an amazing feeling to win a gold medal at WorldSkills UK and taking part in that taught me how to work under pressure and to deadline. That has prepared me really well for university especially as industrial control is also on the syllabus.”
‘The whole UTC learning experience is fun, it’s completely different to where I was before and it has really suited me.’
Brooke, Creative & Digital
‘When I first came to UTC it was such a new experience, everything was so exciting, there were lots of different and new opportunities. It’s really different to my school before.’
Rosemary, Creative & Digital
"The best thing about the UTC is the equipment and the opportunities; at other colleges you wouldn’t get the experience you get here and I wouldn’t know the things I now know."
