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.
