“I have really enjoyed my time at the UTC because you get the best of both worlds with the chance to do hands-on technical learning and academic qualifications. That educational approach has really suited me.”

UTC Sheffield student Hannah Saville is blazing a trail to become an engineer and has secured a place at a prestigious Russell Group university.

The 18-year-old student – who has achieved three straight As including an A* – has completed a technical qualification in engineering, as well as A Levels in maths, further maths and physics at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus on Matilda Street.

Hannah gained A*, A, A grades in her three A Levels and a B grade in her technical qualification, and is going on to the University of Sheffield to study a Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

She said: ‘I’m really pleased with my results, now I’m looking forward to going to university and having more independence.”

During her time at the UTC, Hannah was part of a team that won a silver medal in the industrial control skills competition at WorldSkills UK. This helped to make the UTC the highest-ranking English educational institution in WorldSkills UK last year.

She explained: “I have really enjoyed my time at the UTC because you get the best of both worlds with the chance to do hands-on technical learning and academic qualifications. That educational approach has really suited me.”

Hannah added: “I really enjoy maths and problem solving, and the employer visits to companies such as Jaguar Land Rover and taking part in WorldSkills have given us a great insight into the industry. I think more young women should consider a career in engineering. There are some great opportunities out there.”

In her spare time, Hannah is also a talented fell runner. She set a fell running record last year by being the first woman under 18 to complete the 66-mile Bob Graham round within 24 hours. Hannah finished in 23 hours and 28 minutes, after covering 42 of the Lake District’s highest fells.
