Specialism: Advanced engineering | Energy
Date of opening: September 2014
The goal of the UTC Norfolk is simple. We will provide students with the skills and qualifications to either, go on to university, or to take up skilled employment at 18. To achieve this, we will offer a rigorous package of academic study, practical skill development and work experience. We have a particular focus on the advanced engineering and energy sectors, but we will provide a sound educational foundation for any student who has an interest in engineering, science, maths or computing careers.
We have a fabulous site and a £10m construction scheme is on track to provide us with a fantastic 21st century learning space for July. In this building, we will have £1.3m of specialist engineering and scientific equipment that will provide many unique learning experiences for students. We have the support and sponsorship of a number of significant employers, the sponsorship of the University of East Anglia and the backing of the TEN Group.
We have worked actively and very closely with the University of East Anglia and our employer partners and our educational group, establishing new and constructive relationships that will make UTC Norfolk a unique and highly relevant learning institution where the world of education meets the world of work.Dick Palmer
Group Chief Executive Officer, TEN Group
Ultimately the goal is to develop the next generation of skilled, enterprising employees, technicians, managers and engineers, for which Norfolk UTC is well placed to deliver.Jason Martin
