Derby Manufacturing UTC (DMUTC) is about to join the Sheffield UTC Multi-Academy Trust as part of a renewal of its vision, strategy and operation following Ofsted inspection in May 2018. This will entail a relaunch of DMUTC in November 2019 pending final sign off of the legal agreements.

The Sheffield UTC Multi-Academy Trust is at the forefront of UTC developments across England, with two UTCs graded Ofsted ‘Good’. The first was opened in 2013, one of the earliest UTCs to open in the country, offering two technical specialisms, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing and Creative Digital Media. The second opened in September 2016 offering Computing, Health Sciences and Sports Science. Further information about UTC Sheffield can be found on the website at: http://www.utcsheffield.org.uk. Both Sheffield UTCs offer Year 9 places.

As part of the planned relaunch, it is proposed that DMUTC will extend provision to Year 9 students and will also change Published Admission Numbers (PAN) for Year 10 and Year 12 from September 2020. Both of these represent significant developments and require evidence of support from all those who might benefit. We hope that you will be able to take a few minutes to complete our consultation survey, which is available online on the link below or can be downloaded to print off and return by email or post. Every response received will help us to progress and also to make sure that plans for the relaunch of the new UTC are fit for purpose.
