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’ve had a really positive experience at the UTC and I am so pleased to go on to such a prestigious university. I love engineering because it’s creative and involves problem solving. I’ve been determined to aim high and reach my goal no matter how challenging that might be.

Determined UTC Sheffield student Mitchell Duncan had set his heart on studying at a prestigious local university.

Now his studies and hard work have paid off. The 18-year-old is going on to the University of Sheffield to study a Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Mitchell has completed a technical qualification in engineering at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus, on Matilda Street, achieving a distinction* grade.

He also took three A Levels and achieved an A* grade in maths and two B grades in further maths and physics. He said: “I feel really pleased. I’m still a bit shell shocked! I’m very excited to be able to go onto my first choice of university.”

Mitchell explained: “I’ve had a really positive experience at the UTC and I am so pleased to go on to such a prestigious university. I love engineering because it’s creative and involves problem solving. I’ve been determined to aim high and reach my goal no matter how challenging that might be.”

He added: “I’ve grown up on a council estate in a single parent household. It’s important to me to stay in Sheffield and staying local will also reduce some of the associated costs of studying for a degree.”
