New Engineering Partnership Benefits UTC Sheffield Students

Pictured: UTC Sheffield Principal Nick Crew has welcomed the new partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

UTC Sheffield students will benefit from a new partnership with a leading industry organisation.

Members of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, a leading professional body for the sector, will deliver talks and activities to students and give practical tips on how to get ahead in the industry.

Nick Crew, Principal, UTC Sheffield, said: “We work in partnership with employers to train our students in the technical skills needed for economic growth. This latest backing from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers is a strong endorsement of our curriculum. It will provide valuable careers information and advice for our students and help employers to recruit the next generation of talent.”

According to a recent Institution of Mechanical Engineers report, Manufacturing’s Five Year Skills Solution, the UK has a worldwide reputation for engineering and manufacturing but companies are struggling to find suitable candidates.

Steve Wainwright, Chairman of the Yorkshire Region, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, said: “We have been blown away by the UTC curriculum, engineering facilities and involvement of employers.” He added: “We want to inspire young people about the exciting careers available in engineering and its value to society, as our sector needs to attract more highly skilled engineers and technicians in order to grow.”

Applications are still being accepted for Year 10 places (for 14-year-olds) starting this September. There is a waiting list for Year 12 places (for 16-year-olds). Students who join the UTC in Year 10 are guaranteed an ongoing place.
