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

Charlotte, Computing

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

It was the opportunities UTC offered that convinced Charlotte it was the right place for her: ‘UTC offered me opportunities in computing I’d never had before, it’s given me a chance to do what I really want and hopefully to have the career I want. I want to be a graphic designer or a games programmer; I’ve been doing graphic design at home on my computer for a while and I’m just really interested in gaming.’
Studying Computing, Charlotte has already had the opportunity to work in some of the school’s brand new facilities: ‘The facilities here are useful and very well developed. I like the computing labs best; the Raspberry Pi lab is useful and it helps when it comes to programming because it helps with code.’
Continuing Charlotte said, ‘I also like the employer input here. It’s valuable because the projects we do here are what actually happens in industry; not only that but they help us to understand what jobs will be like and how to relate deadlines to real life.’
Summing up her experience so far Charlotte said, ‘Exciting and adventurous. It’s adventurous because it opens up paths you never knew about and exciting because the things you do here you can’t do anywhere else!’
