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

Ellie, Creative & Digital

I like that the teachers know what they’re talking about and bring in outside industry experience. They also encourage you to get outside experience with employers as well.

Sixteen-year-old Ellie is already clear that she wants to pursue a career in Sports Journalism. She joined the UTC as she had a passion for Media, which wasn’t an option at her old school.

With 9 GCSEs including an A* in Media Studies and a Level 2 Distinction* in her Creative and Digital Media BTEC, Ellie is celebrating success.

Ellie said: “It’s great that I’ve been able to specialise in Creative and Digital Media here and I’m really pleased with my Media results. I definitely know that media is something I want to pursue now and I love sport so I eventually want to go to University to study Sports Journalism.”

Commenting on her time at the UTC she said: “I like that the teachers know what they’re talking about and bring in outside industry experience. They also encourage you to get outside experience with employers as well.”

She added: “One of the highlights for me was working on an employer project with Sheffield Live where we had to pitch ideas for a music video and present back to an industry panel.”

Ellie is now looking forward to returning to the UTC in September to study Creative and Digital Media and A Level English Language and EPQ.
