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

Hannah, Creative and Digital

"The UTC environment is really good – when you are submerged in it you get to meet so many different people and you can create so many different things. It opens up loads of opportunities!"

Hannah joined UTC Sheffield City Centre as a Year 12 student with a passion for creative and digital industries. She says, ‘I chose the UTC because it’s a really creative place and I work well doing hands-on things, and that’s exactly what the UTC offered.’ She has now been offered a higher level Cinema Apprenticeship at the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield.

Hannah first found out about the apprenticeship when she decided university might not be the best option for her: ‘Originally Miss Allen told me about this opportunity. I was talking about apprenticeships to her, as I’d applied to university but wasn’t sure it was the right decision. Miss Allen emailed a couple of apprenticeship opportunities through, we looked at them and I decided to apply for the Showroom as it looked spot on. Miss Allen then helped me with my cover letter and with practice interviews.’

Hannah will start her apprenticeship after completing her technical qualifications and A Levels at the UTC. Her apprenticeship will be a mix of marketing and programming; she will be responsible for tasks including creation of promotional material, choosing the footage for the previews to films, social media and working with the clubs and activities provided at the Showroom. ‘I’m looking forward to all the new experiences I’ll have and meeting so many new and interesting people. It’s going to be amazing, I think I’ll thrive in the creative environment.’
After completing her apprenticeship, Hannah plans to stay within the creative sector to pursue her career: ‘My passion is definitely producing and I’d like to make short films and TV shows. I hope to stay in the business and progress.’

Commenting on her overall experience of the UTC, Hannah said, ‘The environment is really good – when you are submerged in it you get to meet so many different people and you can create so many different things. The UTC opens up loads of opportunities, there is so much I’ve learnt that I don’t think I would have done in sixth form. Here you’re actually doing it, it’s so much more creative!’
