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 have really enjoyed my time at the UTC. I have learnt teamwork and problem solving skills. I want to thank the teachers for everything they have done for me. They have been so helpful, nothing was too much trouble.”

Ambitious UTC Sheffield student Jack Wade is raring to get to university.

The 18-year-old is going on to study a Degree in Motorsport Engineering at Coventry University.

The UK is a world leader in the engineering industry, and motorsport involves the application of maths and physics to create innovative new technology.

Jack has completed a technical qualification in engineering, at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus on Matilda Street.  He also studied three A Levels in maths, further maths and physics.

Jack achieved A*, A and D grades in his A Levels and a grade C in his engineering technical qualification. Jack said: “I’m happy with my results, especially my maths.”

Jack decided to join the UTC because students study a specialist technical subject, as well as having the chance to complete academic qualifications, that help them to get into university or work with an employer.

He said: “I have always enjoyed watching motorsport on television and that, as well as an interest in engineering, has inspired my career ambitions. The UTC curriculum covers different types of engineering so you get a good grasp of the range of topics such as computer aided engineering, electrical and pneumatic and control.
