Max, Engineering

I loved my time at the UTC, I made good friends who I know I will keep in touch with and I really enjoyed studying engineering.

UTC Sheffield graduate Max Hayes has his sights set on a career in Rugby.

The 17-year-old, from Worksop, has been asked to play for Doncaster Knights Rugby Academy since graduating from UTC Sheffield in August 2019.

Doncaster Knights are the most promoted team in English Rugby history and the Doncaster Knights Academy launched in 2015 in association with Doncaster College and University Centre. The Academy is aimed at developing elite young sportsmen alongside studying for real-work academic qualifications.

Max joined the UTC in Year 10, aged just 13-years-old, to specialise in Engineering. His enthusiasm towards engineering and the grades he achieved at his previous school meant that he was able to skip Year 9 and take the leap from Year 8 to Year 10.

He said: “My interest in engineering sparked when I was in Year 7 during Design & Technology classes. My mum found out about the UTC through one of her friends whose son came here. We decided to come for a look around and I knew instantly that I wanted to come straight away – it definitely met my expectations.

“I loved my time at the UTC, I made good friends who I know I will keep in touch with and I really enjoyed studying engineering. I got on well with the teachers, they were very helpful and I appreciate all the support they have given me.”

As Max is required to stay in education until he is 18, he now attends Doncaster College alongside his rugby training where he will continue his studies in Engineering.

He said: “I’m still interested in engineering, we had quite a lot of interaction with Employers at the UTC, so before I had the opportunity to play rugby I was looking into apprenticeships.

“My ambition now is to play rugby professionally and my ultimate dream would be to play for England! However, if rugby didn’t work out for me, I would love to work for a company such as Rolls Royce doing Aerospace design. I’ve always loved the design aspect of Engineering and coming up with new ideas of how things can work.”
