Discussion about the potential of a University Technical College (UTC) for Mansfield

November 19, 2018

This morning I met with the Edge Foundation along with local businesses, healthcare trusts and Nottingham Trent University to talk about the potential of a UTC for Mansfield. they already exist in Derby, Sheffield and 50 other locations around the country.


UTCs are schools lead by business that offer a more work-based and vocational education, and I'm particularly keen to partner with health providers and digital businesses to offer a specialised education in these subjects. That can help to give Mansfield's young people the skills to work in our NHS, or the digital skills to be a step ahead as the world of work becomes increasingly tech based.


I've been working with the Foundation for a while looking at this possibility and I am now looking for local stakeholders to buy into the idea with a view to putting in a bid for Government funding, both to meet the need for future school places and to provide this different and exciting option for local children.
