Introduction from the Principal

Everyone will know by now that the Trust running UTC@harbourside and the Government have agreed that the UTC will no longer be funded to run courses from September 2019. The students who enrol in September 2018 will be the last students and adult learners to do so.

Whether you are a student who is returning to complete their GCSE, A-Level or BTEC course or a student or adult learner starting a one year training course with UTC@harbourside I want to let you know that we will put you first.

Every single one of the staff here at the UTC will be focused on ensuring you get the very best education and advice we can offer. We want you to leave here next summer with the qualifications and knowledge to enable you to seize the best opportunities whether that is academic or the next step in your career. We will also have a varied programme of enrichment activities aimed to help you develop your employability skills and prepare you for the next stage of your education and employment.

I’m sure there will be challenges over the next few months and I want to let you know that my door is always open if you have a concern or worry. All of the staff here at UTC@harbourside want the very best for you and your studies. We will ensure that there is the minimum disruption to your education.
