Lincoln University Technical College plans to go on show

Plans for the Lincoln University Technical College (UTC), which will be developed and supported by Lincoln College, the University of Lincoln and Siemens Lincoln, will be on show across the county in February.

The college, which was approved by government last year, will specialise in engineering and core science, teaching ages between 14 and 19.

The variety of practical, full-time courses will give students the chance to continue their studies at a university or take up an apprenticeship in their field of study.

The UTC is influenced by local and national employers, who provide support and work inspiration for students.

The planning applications will be submitted to the City of Lincoln Council to create a new building in the city in September 2014.

Meanwhile, public exhibitions of the plans will go on view in Lincoln at Siemens’ Teal Park location on February 5 from 6pm.

Representatives from the three support organisations will answer any questions regarding the plans.

Simon Plummer, spokesman for the UTC, said: “The three partner organisations; Lincoln College, the University of Lincoln and Siemens have collectively put in a huge amount of work to support the development of the new UTC in Lincoln.

“We are delighted to be able to share this now with potential students and local communities, who will benefit from the resources that the new college will offer.

“The public consultations will demonstrate what we hope to achieve and how the college will complement vocational and educational initiatives across the region.

“It will also be an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to find out more about how attending the UTC could benefit their future.”
