I am delighted to support Doncaster UTC’s process to recruit a Principal. Doncaster UTC is part of our ambitious plans to transform education across the borough and help our young people find the right academic and vocational route. By doing so they make the most of their talents and gain rewarding and successful jobs.
The UTC will link our young people with local businesses, so they gain the technical skills needed by industry. These are exciting times for Doncaster as we continue to build for the future. It complements our Social Mobility Opportunity Area (SMOA) and Post-16 Review plans by providing a centrally based educational facility which young people from all across our borough can easily get to.
Doncaster UTC is about ‘Team Doncaster’ and standing together as a Borough. It will support, and be supported by, all sectors of our economy. It will leave a legacy in the Borough ensuring young people are ready for the world of work, have access to high-quality education, and work with industry and higher education partners to identify progression routes.
Doncaster UTC will be located in the Civic and Cultural Quarter. The area has already seen significant investment through the £20 million investment in the Civic Office, £22 million investment in the CAST performance venue, and the £14 million investment in the soon to be built Culture and Learning Centre. A new cinema and restaurant complex, due to open in late 2019, will be situated between CAST and Doncaster UTC. More information about Doncaster’s masterplan for the town centre and the various investment projects can be viewed by following this link.
These are exciting times for Doncaster’s town centre and, in particular, the Civic and Cultural Quarter where the UTC will be sited. The latest investments and changes to our town centre and surrounding areas will build on the work already planned and completed elsewhere in Doncaster.
Some of our most exciting projects completed and in the pipeline include:
I am confident Doncaster UTC will sit alongside other learning establishments in the area and complement the existing provision we have. I believe the UTC will drive ambition and standards benefiting more than the students who attend.
When we invest in people to develop their skills and capabilities, we all benefit from a stronger economy and society.
