On Wednesday 4th May The Leigh UTC hosted another of its popular networking business breakfasts. Delegates listened intently as Year 13 students demonstrated examples of their extended engineering projects which included go-kart refurbishment, an engine strip down project and participation in the highly competitive Royal Navy Challenge.
Mr Nutter, The Leigh UTC’s Pastoral Support Coordinator, gave a fascinating overview of the recent project carried out for the Metropolitan police where students built a petrol bomb trolley to be used at the police training centre in Gravesend. Mrs Lindars, Assistant Principal of The Leigh UTC informed the delegates, who all come from the local business community, of the many exciting forthcoming developments at the College including the opening of a new site in September 2017 which will be adjacent to the current UTC building and will accommodate 11-14 year old students.
Our next business breakfast is scheduled for the 6th July 2016 and will afford delegates the opportunity to celebrate with us the students successes in gaining both employment and further education places.
