Every parent wants their child to reach their full potential and to develop their personal skills that increase the chance to go into a high quality career – an apprenticeship, university, or employment. That’s why some of the area’s leading nuclear engineering employers, Sellafield Ltd and Wood PLC, and Manchester Metropolitan University have collaborated to create a University Technical College (UTC) for Warrington.
A 2012 skills report by Warrington Borough Council highlighted the shortage of skilled workers for region. UTC Warrington is proud to be creating a sustainable pipeline of talent for region’s STEM businesses.
The North West has a proud history of industry and Warrington has historically been a town with a rich engineering and manufacturing heritage. Today, the town is home to one of the UK’s largest nuclear hub (Birchwood Park) and the future holds many projects that will require the technical skills and knowledge that our students will have gained whilst at the UTC. Employers are looking for those young people with the attitude to succeed; at the UTC, we prepare students to have the confidence and skills to do so.
We are located on Dallam Lane, in central Warrington. We work with businesses from across the STEM industry and Higher Education partners from across the North West. With our excellent location, our students travel from across the region to take advantage of what the UTC can offer them.
