We want to ensure that each student is employable at each entry point giving the UTC generation the best chance of success in a changing, challenging and global corporate world.

Through our links with the University of Hull, we will recruit staff who are actively engaged in their own professional development and engage with local and national businesses to better understand the labour market and business demands as well as being at the forefront of their specialism. Our graduates will have worked with industry partners and Scarborough Business Ambassadors throughout their UTC career and will have the skills, attitudes and behaviours required to become a valuable employee from day one.
