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.
"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."
Bella, Creative and Digital, Y13
“I decided to move across to the UTC after a year in sixth form at another school because I wanted to get into engineering. It felt like a fresh start for me. The UTC teachers are very supportive, and I was impressed with the engineering equipment. You get to study university level engineering."
Miles, Engineering, Y13
"In three words I'd describe the UTC as equal, friendly and amazing!"
Molly, Creative and Digital, Y13
"A lot of employers come in, very often. You get to speak to them, and they tell us about their companies and set projects for us to do. I don’t think anywhere else offers that kind of benefit. When you’re applying for jobs, you’ve got real experience to write about."
Evie, Engineering, Y12
"The UTC environment is really good – when you are submerged in it you get to meet so many different people and you can create so many different things. It opens up loads of opportunities!"
