Here at UTC we’re treated like adults, the teachers here really care about getting you the best out of your education. The facilities here are really good, and it feels much more like a workplace than a school or college.

Robert, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

Students can join us from age 13 in Year 9, Year 10 or Year 12 and study a combination of A Levels/GCSEs and technical qualifications in their chosen specialism. Post 16 students can study up to three A Levels alongside their technical qualification.

Together, both campuses provide a dynamic, employer-led and supportive learning environment coupled with industry standard facilities, offering students access to careers-focused education unavailable elsewhere.

UTC is exciting and adventurous. It opens up paths you never knew about and the things you do here you can’t do anywhere else!

Charlotte, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

The UTC student experience is enjoyable and purposeful.  Every student has a personal learning plan and is known and supported as an individual by both the Principal and the academic team. With just 600 learners on campus (when full), there is scope to nurture and support individual talent so that each student can reach their potential and achieve their ambitions.

I think the UTC is brilliant – there is so much technology for the students and the teachers are fantastic.

Amy Schofield, Lavender International

Most of the students at the UTC are outstanding. They’re very polite, very professional and very talented. Those for whom the top grades don’t come as easily make up for it with sheer determination.

Nigel Stafford, Clear Channel

I really liked the atmosphere at the UTC – it is a small, friendly place full of like minded people who travel from across the region. Everyone is known and focused on their specialist subjects

Shauna, Former UTC Sheffield Student

he UTC has a lot of great kit so you can build up your practical experience, which is very beneficial. I’ve been able to progress much quicker at the AMRC Training Centre on the manual turning unit, for example, because of all my experience at the UTC.”
