Studying at a UTC
Georgia enjoys the professional atmosphere of the school, and finds that being treated as an equal by staff encourages the students to work harder. While the school day is longer than at her previous school, the timetable allows for plenty of variety, keeping learning interesting and engaging. The integrated nature of the curriculum has made maths, science and English lessons come alive for Georgia, as links are made with her TV and film studies.
The UTC’s partnerships with industry were also a big attraction for Georgia and since joining in 2015 she has worked with the BBC and Salford City Radio among others.
The UTC offers so many amazing work experience opportunities in which we can network with employers and attend industry events. Every day it opens my eyes to something new and I learn about jobs I didn’t even know existed.
Looking to the future
Georgia has always been a performer and knows her ambition will take her to either stage or screen but since attending the UTC she has turned her hand to roles behind the camera and curtain too.
Up until now my experience had only ever been in front of the camera but at the UTC I’ve already learnt many technical roles that I feel confident in too.
While Georgia hopes to continue with her acting, her long term ambition is to become a director so she’s planning to study TV and film in the sixth form, and she’s keeping her options open by taking A Levels in English literature and maths as well.
Whatever path Georgia eventually takes, she is confident that the UTC has set her up for success.
