Our vision at UTC Sheffield City Centre is to support 100% of our students into positive destinations including higher and degree apprenticeships as well as competitive university places.

Traditional schools have often focused solely on academic attainment which doesn’t always align with what employers and the industry needs.

Our aim is to be an outstanding provider of both academic and technical education so that our students can achieve fantastic destinations within the technical industries and specialisms that we support: Engineering and Creative and Digital Media.

To help us achieve this aim, we have very strong backing from our employer partners – many of whom are global brands such as Rolls-Royce, McLaren Automotive, Siemens and Warp Films. We also benefit from the support of our higher education partner, Sheffield Hallam University, and our other key sponsors, Sheffield College and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Our vision is to provide an integrated academic and vocational curriculum that focuses on technical and employability skills. This curriculum stretches our students in a way that prepares them very well for careers in their chosen sectors. Our employer partners support us in prioritising the quality of the educational experience in relation to future career paths over a pure focus on qualifications. Nevertheless, wherever possible, we want to achieve both, and all of our students achieve a set of qualifications for entry to the next stage of learning and employment which are endorsed by both our university and employer partners.
