Alex Reynolds, Principal, UTC Sheffield City Centre, said: “Elliot had the confidence to join the UTC in order to pursue his career in the media industry. This confidence has been channelled through excellent levels of effort and commitment throughout his studies which has led to a great set of results and the next stage of his career.
