Message from UTC Sheffield City Centre

We have increased student online learning using Teams as the predominant method of delivery. This may be supplemented with face to face delivery on site in the coming weeks, for those students who require additional support. All students have been sent information on how to download and set up Teams. Should any student have difficulties with this, please contact admin@utcsheffield.org.uk and we will address your query as soon as possible. Therefore, our offer of face to face teaching, in line with government advice is that we will invite key worker/vulnerable/students who cannot access online delivery.

Please see the Letters page and the Covid-19 Update page for more information.

In these unprecedented times, we are sorry that we are unable to run the parents evening on 15 July 2020.  If you have any pressing concerns, please contact admin@utcsheffield.org.uk

Agustin, Engineering

I’ve learnt lots of new things such as being able to work better in a team but have also had access to new machinery that I wouldn’t have got elsewhere.

Sixteen-year-old Agustin is celebrating his success after achieving 9 GCSEs including 2 grade 9s in French & Spanish, a grade 8 in Chemistry and a grade 7 in Mathematics.

He said: “I’m happy overall with my results and looking forward to the future. I eventually want to go to University.”

Agustin says that coming to the UTC was the right choice for him: “The UTC seemed like a good opportunity to study Engineering and to develop my skills. It’s been a great first step towards an Engineering career.”

Agustin particularly enjoyed taking part in a one-week work experience at the AMRC: “I was working with a Rolls Royce trainee apprentice which gave me an insight into the industry. I learnt how to be more mechanical and it gave me valuable workplace experience.”

Commenting on his time at the UTC he said: “I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything about the UTC – the friendships I’ve made, the classes and the teachers have been great and I feel like I’ve become more sophisticated here.”

He added: “I’ve learnt lots of new things such as being able to work better in a team but have also had access to new machinery that I wouldn’t have got elsewhere.”

Agustin is returning to the UTC in September to study A Levels in Maths, Chemistry and Engineering Level 3.
