The Information Technology and Healthcare Science sectors in the North East are successful, continually growing and becoming increasingly prominent within the region. To sustain this growth it is vitally important that we increase the pool of young people ready to join both sectors. The North East Futures UTC is a response to this challenge by providing young people with a curriculum designed by employers from both the Information Technology and Healthcare Science sectors. The unique partnership behind our UTC will provide a rich range of work-related and technical experience, including placements in real work contexts, projects and mentoring provision.
We believe the North East Futures UTC is an essential component to the North East skills strategy and will help us develop the workforce of the future for both the Information Technology and Healthcare Science sectors.Bob Paton
