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

“Moving to the UTC definitely lived up to expectations. I enjoyed the fact that you get contact with employers, and that they set and give feedback on our coursework. It gives you valuable industry knowledge and confidence in your chosen specialism.”

Rebecca is proud to be one of the first trailblazing girls at UTC Sheffield.

Rebecca Jackson won the Sheffield city-wide enterprise competition, BiG Challenge, in 2011 with her online jewellery design business, FunkySprout, and has not looked back since. At the time she was also training in water polo five nights a week, and this multi-talented approach remains a trade mark of her activity.

The 18-year-old, from Sheffield, is now studying at the Peter Jones Academy for entrepreneurship after graduating from  UTC Sheffield in 2015.

Rebecca pursued the Creative and Digital route through the UTC, after joining in Year 12 in September 2013, when the UTC first opened its doors. It allowed her to combine her passion for creativity and design with her interest in English, music and entrepreneurship.

Alongside A Levels, she gained double distinction stars in Cambridge Technicals Level 3 in Digital Media, which is equivalent to two A2 levels.

Rebecca said: “I felt very happy and content studying at the UTC. Being able to complete technical as well as academic qualifications was the perfect combination for me.”

She added: “Moving to the UTC definitely lived up to expectations. I enjoyed the fact that you get contact with employers, and that they set and give feedback on our coursework. It gives you valuable industry knowledge and confidence in your chosen specialism.”
