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
“I have really enjoyed my time at the UTC because you get the best of both worlds with the chance to do hands-on technical learning and academic qualifications. That educational approach has really suited me.”
Hannah, Engineering, Y13
UTC is a lot more professional than a normal school, it’s the business ethic, including the business attire, timings of the day and the attitude; it just makes the whole experience more professional. Even the building is more like an industry workplace than a college.
Lewis, Y12, Computing
"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
“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
