UTC Sheffield City Centre celebrate high technical and academic results

UTC Sheffield City Centre students are celebrating a strong set of technical and A Level results, achieving very high pass rates in both types of qualifications.

The UTC – which is Ofsted graded ‘good’ – is a technical school for 13 to 19-year-olds based on Matilda Street in Sheffield.

Students complete academic as well as technical qualifications in engineering or creative and digital media, backed by employers.

This year, a total of 67 students sat exams. The technical qualification pass rate is 100% for creative and digital media, and 98.2% for engineering.

In addition, 66.7% of students achieved a Distinction* to Distinction-Merit grade (A* to B equivalent) in creative and digital media and 47.3% did so in engineering.

This year’s A Level pass rate has risen to 98.2% compared to 97% last year. At the UTC, 55% of students completed A Levels alongside their technical qualifications. The pass rate for A Level grades from A* to B is 33%.

In addition, 42% of students completed a Level 3 qualification alongside their technical qualifications.

Alex Reynolds, Principal of UTC Sheffield City Centre said: “We would like to congratulate our students on their achievements this year. Our students leave us with excellent technical skills and qualifications ready to move on to their next phase of their careers.”

Students are going onto a range of destinations including degree apprenticeships with employers such as British Aerospace, Jaguar-Landrover, JCB, Toyota, The RAF, Ministry of Defence, Fernite, CTL Seal, Lavender International, Atomising Systems, as well as universities including University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Nottingham, Liverpool University, and the University of East London.

The technical qualifications are equivalent to between one and three A Levels and involve working on employer-led projects and developing skills related to the subject specialism as well as team working and problem solving skills. The £10 million UTC is equipped with cutting edge industry standard facilities.

UTCs are government funded technical schools that have been established to provide technical learning opportunities in partnership with employers and universities. They provide academic and technical qualifications to match the skills needs of regional employers, supporting economic growth and employment.

Employers supporting UTC Sheffield City Centre include AES Seal, Bauer Media Group, Festo, Finger Industries, Henry Boot Construction, Hive, Lavender International, Rolls-Royce, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Live, the University of Sheffield, Siemens and Sumo Digital.

Young people can join the UTC in Year 9 at the age of 13 or in Year 12 at the age of 16. For more information, visit www.utcsheffield.org.uk
