Our connection with the local science and engineering community is the foundation of our vision and industry-led curriculum. With growing enterprises on our doorstep, the Cheshire Science Corridor to the south and the hub of the UK’s nuclear sector based nearby in Birchwood, we benefit from outstanding employer engagement opportunities. We draw from the expertise and resources of our industry partners to shape our students’ attributes and technical skills, ensuring they are career ready after UTCW.
The experience our students gain when working with our employer partners is invaluable. It gives our students the drive to achieve positive destinations and makes them stand out from the crowd when applying for a place at university, an apprenticeship or a job.
Our UTC captures the expertise and combined knowledge of science and engineering companies active in the North West area such as Sellafield Ltd, Wood, Cavendish, Nuvia, Stanley Engineered Fastening, Fujitsu and many more, with all partners fully committed to nurturing and generating a skilled future workforce.
As we grow over the next few years we are keen to further expand our employer partner base to ensure that all aspects of science and engineering are represented and accessible to our students as they study with us. Bridging the disconnect between education and industry, companies can get involved in the three following stages;
- Student Recruitment
- Student Development
- Student Destinations
Through working with our students, many companies have already benefited from working with us, identifying talented young students whom they’ve subsequently employed. They’ve also benefited from providing rewarding experiences, inspiring young people to identify and achieve their goals.
