A new university technical college at England's newest city
Our team of education specialists built Doncaster's new UTC for the Department for Education.
Doncaster is England's newest city and it's projects like this that is spurring on its future growth.
The five-storey UTC includes a three-and-a-half-storey sports hall, with dining below, and a four-storey lecture theatre with a roof terrace. A multi-use games area (MUGA) outside provides excellent further sports and recreation space.
The new college opened in 2020 and provides students aged 13-19 years old with a core curriculum based around STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. It aims to equip students with the knowledge to specialise in engineering and creative and digital technologies and engages with local employers to provide a vocational learning environment.
Garath Rawson, principal of Doncaster UTC, said:
“The new building is an iconic town centre building that really adds something to the redevelopment of this area of Doncaster, as well as meeting the needs of our students who are embarking on an exciting journey in advanced engineering and creative and digital design."
“…The building includes a mixture of general teaching spaces and specialist teaching spaces to deliver the curriculum, including the digital aspects such as coding, and specialist engineering equipment for our students to develop key skills.”
The UTC is part of the Brighter Futures Learning Partnership Trust (BFLPT) as well as part of the network of UTCs, the Baker Dearing Trust.
