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

"The students at the UTC come here to get ahead. Most students are like me, they don’t want to mess about. Everyone wants to succeed, so it makes it much easier to concentrate on learning. I feel more secure here, especially about ultimately getting a job.”

Anjali, already has her career path mapped out – she wants to be a Structural Engineer – and that’s just what the UTC is helping her to achieve. When  Anjali received her GCSE results she was delighted with them, saying: “I’m really proud of my result in Engineering as it’s really difficult. I’m delighted with my A in Maths as I want to study Maths at A Level.”

Anjali has decided that her next step will be to continue with a mix of technical qualifications and A Levels at the UTC.  She is very clear on why UTC is the best option for her:  “Firstly, I have a really good relationship with the teachers, it’s very easy to talk to them. I feel they really care here.  Secondly, it’s so much more focused at the UTC – it’s about having a passion for particular subjects.  Thirdly, people here are really keen to learn.  The students at the UTC come here to get ahead.  Most students are like me, they don’t want to mess about. Everyone wants to succeed, so it makes it much easier to concentrate on learning.  I feel more secure here, especially about ultimately getting a job.”

The UTC has offered opportunities that Anjali feels she would not have been offered at other schools: “We’ve done a lot of employer-related stuff. For example, we visited Rolls-Royce and got to see how they build engines, it was really awesome! It’s been an eye-opener being here.  I’ve learnt a lot more about Engineering than I could have done at school.”

After sixth form, Anjali is considering an apprenticeship as she feels this might be a better route for her than university, but she feels she has options: “There are so many people with the same qualifications, here you get something different.”
