Impressed @UTCPortsmouth.


I’m really impressed with the work @UTCPortsmouth. It’s a new type of #college that provides a specialist #STEM curriculum delivered by experts to meet the growing demands of #employers across the region.

UTC Portsmouth delivers an exciting, stimulating and relevant STEM #curriculum focused on equipping our #students with the #skills and attitudes to succeed in their chosen #career pathways. Learning is #student centered and employer informed so that there is a combined focus on students’ personal development and their #education. Their world class, state of the art modern facilities include high-tech workshops, specialist equipment, the most up to date software and innovative resources. All of their students use their own #Chromebook devices to support their learning in a fully cloud based #learning environment.

Regular engagement with #employers and #partners is at the core of UTC Portsmouth. Founding members are: The University of Portsmouth, Portsmouth City Council, the Royal Navy, BAE Systems, QinetiQ and Salterns Academy Trust. Other key partners include: Land Rover BAR, Airbus and NATS. Partners support the delivery of #education by collaborating with #teachers on the design of projects to contextualise learning as well as #group work, site visits, work experience and seminars.

It’s a very dynamic and engaging place to #learn and I enjoyed meeting the Principal Ciaran O’Dowda who showed me around the #college and its facilities.
