We are proud to have been part of the official opening of the Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College (UTC) by the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The UTC opens up fantastic new opportunities for young people going into engineering and construction. We worked on the early stages of the project helping Westminster Council to assess the suitability of the site and it is great to see it come to fruition with a new, state-of-the-art building, already full of students. It is the first UTC in Central London and was co-founded by the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, the University of Westminster and Network Rail as well as being supported by Westminster City Council.
We are really pleased to be a part of it going forwards as well and are in the process of becoming a signed up member of the UTC’s Employer Alliance, allowing us to work in a hands-on, practical way to support students on the new Design Engineer Construct course that has been set up by the college to try to help tackle the skills shortage in the construction sector. More information on the opening and the UTC can be found here.
