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

“I’m really proud to be doing something different and going into what has traditionally been a male dominated industry."

UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park student Grace Knott is blazing a trail.

The 16-year-old is going on to an advanced practical modern apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce in Derby where she will train to be a welder.

Grace has achieved nine GCSEs, with some strong grades, and a technical qualification in sport science at distinction distinction.

Now Grace is looking forward to starting the world of work where she will earn as she learns on the apprenticeship whilst gaining a qualification at the same time.

She said: “Things have gone well and I’m really happy with my results. I chose the UTC because I felt that it would give me the best chance of pursuing my dreams and it has fantastic facilities.

Grace added: “I’m really proud to be doing something different and going into what has traditionally been a male dominated industry. On an apprenticeship, I can train in the workplace and get the skills that my employer needs.”

She continued: “I’ve always loved creating things and problem solving and that’s why a career in engineering appeals to me. At the same, I’ve always been very sporty and played football. Now I’ve decided to pursue my interest in engineering.”

Dr Sarah Clark, Principal of UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, said: “We are delighted that Grace has secured a competitive and well-deserved apprenticeship with a prestigious engineering company such as Rolls-Royce.”
