Opportunities for 14 to 19-year olds who are interested in technical specialisms will be showcased at two upcoming events.

Parents and teenagers are invited to find out more about careers in sectors linked to regional economic growth at two UTC Sheffield events this month.

Open evenings on January 13 and 27 will demonstrate study possibilities in advanced engineering and manufacturing, creative and digital, human sciences and computing.

Those who attend will find out how to apply for a place at UTC Sheffield starting in September this year, meet staff and get information on courses, careers and university.

Nick Crew, Executive Principal, UTC Sheffield, said: “Our students enjoy hands-on technical learning and industry projects supported by employers, shown by their fantastic recent national success at WorldSkills.”

He added: “Students also benefit from great careers prospects in sectors where there are regional skills gaps. I look forward to meeting visitors and explaining how we provide a different educational experience for young people.”

Both events will give an overview of all four UTC Sheffield subject specialisms and take place from 5pm to 7pm at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus on Matilda Street.

University Technical Colleges (UTCs) are state funded specialist technical schools.
