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

Charlie, Engineering

"At the UTC I’ve worked with Rolls-Royce, which was really good! Their employees came in and spoke to us, and it gave us an accurate insight into what they do and what we can do in Engineering."

Y10 student Charlie first heard about the UTC through his cousin who had attended the year before. After hearing his cousin say how much he enjoyed it, Charlie decided to take a look at the website and visit the UTC before applying for a place. Charlie is now in Y10 at the UTC City Centre Campus studying Engineering and Product Design alongside his core GCSEs.

‘I really enjoy Engineering, I like everything from making and building to taking things apart. I’m a practical learner and I think the UTC is a better route to college, work or an apprenticeship.

‘At the UTC I’ve worked with Rolls-Royce, which was really good! Their employees came in and spoke to us, and it gave us an accurate insight into what they do and what we can do in Engineering.’

Within his core subjects Charlie also studies Citizenship: ‘I really like Citizenship. At the moment, we’re working in groups on a campaign.  We had to choose something we were passionate about and my group has chosen mental health support for young people, as we don’t think there’s enough out there. We’re campaigning for more help and recognition. It’s really interesting.’

When asked to describe the UTC in three words Charlie said, ‘One big family.’
