Find out more about studying at the new Humber UTC at a recruitment and information event on Monday, March 30 at The Pods in Scunthorpe.

This event from 3pm to 4.30pm is for young people interested in attending the UTC, to give insight into why they should choose this facility over others.

Humber UTC is designed to be a school with a difference. Students will work on real projects designed and delivered by top companies in the Humber region. It will provide students with the skills, aspirations and expectations to meet employers’ future needs.

The recruitment event is a great opportunity for young people to find out information and meet the UTC’s partner employers. They include:

* Tata Steel

* RAF

* University of Hull

* Clugstons

* BAE Systems

* Online Design

* Smart Winds

* Able UK

These employers will work closely with students on current projects.

The ‘Why choose the Humber UTC?’ event follows on from others that have been extremely successful.

There will be guest speakers from the partner employers who will discuss what their companies do and how they will work with students.

Spaces are still available for young people aged 14 to 19 to apply to the Humber UTC after admission numbers were extended.

On successful completion of studies at the Humber UTC, students will be offered a guaranteed job interview with regional employers and a conditional offer at the University of Hull.

Places are limited for the free event and must be booked in advance. Visit the website:www.humberutc.co.uk/events/why-choose-humber-utc

Sonia Allen, Project Manager for the Humber UTC, said: “The Humber UTC aims to give young people the skills and knowledge they need in order to start their careers in renewables and engineering. We have guaranteed interviews with regional employers and a conditional offer at University of Hull for all students who successfully complete their studies. It really is a fantastic opportunity.

“There isn’t long left to apply for a place at Humber UTC, so don’t miss out – apply today.”

David Shephard, Group Business Executive at Able UK, said: “Parents and students have seemed enthusiastic about the way employers will interact with the college and help to form a practical curriculum at past events. The idea of being able to contextualise what will be taught in the classroom with real life scenarios in the world of work seemed to appeal to the students.

“Parents reinforced to us the need for students to learn how what they study in the classroom will be transferred to an everyday working environment. It was clear to us as employers that there is a growing demand for pathways into meaningful apprenticeships.”
