The Chamber is backing a bid for a University Technical College (UTC) to be built in Doncaster.
Feedback from local employers is essential to the project to determine the level of support for a UTC in the town. Please read the information below and then complete this short survey to feedback your views on the proposal...
What is a UTC and how could it benefit your business?
“The UTC will support the education, training and vocational development of young people in sectors that are pivotal to the future of Doncaster’s economy. These include: Rail, Engineering, and Manufacturing. All of these sectors are, already, key contributors to Doncaster’s economy; however, businesses in all of these sectors are also reporting skills gaps and an ageing workforce – issues that are constraining their growth potential.
The UTC will help generate a supply chain of ambitious young people into these sectors and consequently help ensure that Doncaster has the talent it needs to maintain and develop more world-class businesses in these sectors. A visible and successful UTC will help raise aspirations in our young people and highlight the exciting STEM related careers available to them in and around Doncaster." Dan Fell, CEO Doncaster Chamber. Read Dan's blog on why the Chamber is supporting this campaign here.
A Doncaster UTC would not only potentially benefit local businesses, it would also have an obvious impact on local students and their parents/carers. Therefore feedback is also being sought from the perspective of these groups too.
