Hewitt Studios recently received detailed planning consent for its latest project, a new University Technical College (UTC) at Berkeley Green sponsored by South Gloucestershire & Stroud College (SGS) in partnership with the University of Gloucestershire (UoG) and a network of regional, national and international employers.
Berkeley Green UTC will specialise in Digital Technologies, Cyber Security and Advanced Manufacturing. It will directly respond to the demand from employers for adaptable, flexible and suitably skilled young people to support the growing engineering and digital sectors in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and Bristol. The UTC will provide young people with a unique opportunity to take part in an employer led curriculum in a challenging, fun and supportive environment. The strong links with education and business partners will support learner’s progression to both higher education and employment.
The project is scheduled to open its doors to learners in 2017.
Hewitt Studios will be presenting the scheme as part of a discussion on the Berkeley Green Science and Technology Park at the upcoming Gloucestershire Business Show at 3pm on 18th May 2016 at Cheltenham Racecourse.
