The facilities we have are great, they give us the chance to get hands on which really helps excel our understanding of theoretical work that may be hard to understand from a textbook.

Scarborough UTC has given me a variety of opportunities that could be used to expedite my career. For example, I have taken part in multiple Royal Navy challenges which rewarded me with many transferrable skills. This also meant I could use my experiences gained here to accelerate my application for the Navy. In addition, I was given help for my interview from my mentor who is a graduate engineer via our career’s development program.
