Dave and Building Crewe UTC

New images show how the £10.6 million Crewe Engineering & Design UTC could breath new life into the community’s 14-18 year old sector.

The UTC campus, due to open to students in September 2016, also has a new Principal David Terry.

Mr Terry aims to drive the innovative technically-oriented curriculum.

There will also be an open day at Manchester Manchester University Cheshire campus on Thursday (September 17) for potential students and parents to find out more information.

The college aims to create the next generation of creative engineers, scientists, innovators, technicians and designers.

Mr Terry has more than 20 years of senior education leadership experience, working most recently as headteacher of Culcheth High School in Warrington.

He said: “I’m delighted to join Crewe Engineering & Design UTC at such a critical time and lead this progressive educational route for young people in our region.

“The purpose of the UTC is very clear; to meet the challenges of the future developing more talented people ready for roles in industry.

“We will give every student exciting and challenging learning experiences, leading to outstanding progress and the ability to thrive in their chosen careers.

“I am looking forward to meeting students and parents alike, and driving forward together.”

Crewe Engineering & Design UTC will offer courses and pathways for 14-18 year olds, alongside business and academic partners like Bentley Motors, Manchester Metropolitan University, Siemens, Bosch, OSL Rail, Chevron Racing, Optical 3D, Unipart and Cheshire East Council.

Georgina Harris, head of mechanical engineering at Manchester Metropolitan University, said: “The partners were determined to find the best school principal for Crewe Engineering & Design UTC.

“David’s experience of education, and his proven track record in education leadership is perfectly suited to lead our collective ambitions for the UTC.

“It will open doors to young people with the desire to develop their love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and develop them into talented individuals prepared for their future in engineering, giving the UTC generation the best chance of success in an ever-changing, challenging and global economy.”

More information can be found at an Open Day between 5.30pm–7.30pm on Thursday September 17 at the Cheshire Campus of Manchester Metropolitan University, or online www.utccrewe.co.uk.
