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

It’s been fantastic to develop so many different creative skills at the UTC and understand what employers in the industry need.

Screen writing career beckons for talented Elliot

Aspiring television writer Elliot Sarjeant is looking forward to going to university having successfully completed his studies at UTC Sheffield City Centre.

The 18-year-old has completed a technical qualification in creative and digital media achieving a distinction* distinction* as well as a grade D in A Level in photography and a grade E in the extended project qualification.

Elliot joined the UTC in Year 12 at the age of 16. He is going onto study a Degree in Film Studies and Screen Writing at Sheffield Hallam University.

He said: “It felt exciting and scary opening my results but once I saw what I had got I felt very relieved.”

Elliot added: “It’s been fantastic to develop so many different creative skills at the UTC and understand what employers in the industry need. I’ve made a short film, a music video and a radio programme and tried magazine journalism and produced an advertising campaign.

“It was a bit scary moving schools in Year 12 but the UTC is a nice, friendly place. I found it really easy to make new friends and felt very welcomed. It’s inspired me to want to continue my studies and my career ambition is to write television dramas.”

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. Elliot has the ambition to pursue a career in television and I am sure he has a bright future ahead of him.”
