Employer Partners play a key role in the success of the UTC. They all offer opportunities which students at other schools simply would not get. Not simply one-off work experience blocks. In Year 11, 12 & 13 some of our students work for a day per week or more for 13 to 25 weeks gaining invaluable insight and experience into the industry. Our students have the capacity to work throughout the year where necessary.
Students and Employer Partners can also ‘try before they buy’. We provide an opportunity for both parties to see what it is like to work with each other and see if there is longer term benefit from the partnership. Several students have gone on to work for local employers as a direct result of these arrangements.
If you are looking to support and help a young person fulfil their potential, want a project to be supported or delivered or would simply like to find out more about being an Employer Partner then please get in touch.
