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.

"The level of trust at the UTC is fantastic. I really enjoy the fact that the teachers will tell you what you need to do and then they’ll let you get on, but be watching from a safe distance."
Lewis & Maddie, Creative and Digital Students, Y12
"The UTC in three words: Fascinating, interesting and enlightening!"
Callam, Creative and Digital Student, Y13
"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 Student, Y12
"In three words I'd describe the UTC as equal, friendly and amazing!"
Molly, Creative and Digital Student, Y13
"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!"
