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

‘Whilst at UTC I’ve had the opportunity to use the Solid Works software and design a car; I’ve also build an engine during enrichment time. It’s fantastic to be able to use industry-standard facilities like that at school! The UTC has opened up opportunities I couldn’t get elsewhere.’

UTC Sheffield City Centre Engineering student Ahmed Camran was delighted when he opened his GCSE results: ‘It’s a feeling of complete satisfaction, knowing all the work I’ve put in has paid off, I’ve got what I need and I’m really happy.’

Now that Ahmed has completed his GCSEs, he plans to continue his studies at UTC Sheffield City Centre, specialising in Engineering and studying A Levels in Art and Physics. Outside of school he is also a keen boxer, with ambitions to reach the 2020 Olympics.

Ahmed said, ‘I have two career ambitions: To compete in the boxing world championships and Olympics, and to be an Automotive Design Engineer for a company like Mercedes, Audi or BMW. My background in boxing and the discipline it teaches has helped me to focus at school.’

Ahmed feels that the UTC is preparing him well for the world of work: ‘Whilst at UTC I’ve had the opportunity to use the Solid Works software and design a car; I’ve also build an engine during enrichment time. It’s fantastic to be able to use industry-standard facilities like that at school! The UTC has opened up opportunities I couldn’t get elsewhere.’

Summing up his UTC experience in three words Ahmed said, ‘Memorable, challenging and fun!’
