During a visit to the UTC, I met 4 former students who have kicked off their careers as engineering degree apprentices at Sellafield Ltd.
The UTC is a technical school for 14 to 19 year olds, specialising in engineering, digital, construction and healthcare.
It’s great to see young people so passionate about a career in engineering, and I was delighted to meet the apprentices and hear about their careers to date.
The UTC has been instrumental in helping them achieve their goal - a prestigious apprenticeship with a major Warrington employer.
The staff and facilities at the UTC are impressive, and students have lots of opportunities to work with local employers which helps give them a real understanding of careers available in our area.
