'It’s been a great experience, I’ve made so many new friends and the teachers are great. My favourite part has been working towards my Engineering qualification. I love using all the machinery and learning new skills. Everything we learn here is what they actually do in the real world.’

Aspiring Engineering student Tareq has set his sights high with ambitions of becoming a pilot.

On receiving his GCSE results Tareq, who specialises in Engineering at UTC Sheffield City Centre said, ‘I was totally shocked! But in a good way. I’ve worked so hard for these, I stay behind most nights to use the computers, everyone always thought I had detention, I didn’t, I was just working.’

The sixteen-year-old will now complete a further two years at UTC Sheffield City Centre, continuing his Engineering specialism and studying A Levels in Physics and Maths. Once his A Levels are complete Tareq hopes to begin his training to become a pilot; he is even considering studying in Abu Dhabi, as he is fluent in Arabic and has family connections over there.

Discussing his experiences at the UTC, Tareq said, ‘It’s been a great experience, I’ve made so many new friends and the teachers are great. My favourite part has been working towards my Engineering qualification. I love using all the machinery and learning new skills. Everything we learn here is what they actually do in the real world.’
