03 January 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham UTC (TUTC) is holding its first Open Event of 2015 on Thursday, January 8 - 4.30-6.30pm - for teenagers interested in studying at the state-of-the-art facility.
Specialising in Science and Technology for Sport, Health and Engineering, TUTC is a brand new learning environment based within Lilywhite House, part of the stadium redevelopment scheme and accessible off of the High Road.
Backed by Festo, Fusion, Middlesex University, Mindsets, National Instruments and Tottenham Hotspur, TUTC represents a great opportunity for 14-19 year olds aiming for a career within fields such as sports science, product design and mechanical engineering.
Those attending Thursday’s Open Event will get to meet with current students and sample aspects of the TUTC curriculum, including mechatronics, computer programming, soldering and schematics.
In addition, demonstrations will also be delivered by our technical partner, Under Armour, and the Club’s Sport Scientists who work with first team players on a daily basis – providing an insight into the sort of careers that an education at TUTC could lead to.
To attend, just come along! TUTC is recruiting current Year 9 and 11 students with a view to becoming Year 10 and 12 students at the college from September.
Since TUTC opened its doors in September 2014, current students have been delighted with the opportunities they have received.
One of two elected Student Leaders, Miles Ash, 16, said: “It’s like a new start, no matter what your background is or what walk of life you are from. There are so many facilities and things to do in the school – the opportunities are endless.”
Malieka Alexander, also 16, said: “If you want to succeed, TUTC will give you the opportunity to do that. They will facilitate you with everything you need to reach your goals.”
Sami Ozay, aged 14, said: “You feel like you are in your own environment. You can work for yourself while knowing that there are people here to help you. It’s not like any other school, and you are not confined to a classroom.”
Daniella Jennings, also 14, added: “It’s opened my mind – it was a crack in the door before, but TUTC has pushed that door wide open now.”
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity of a future career within the exciting field of Science and Technology! Come along to Tottenham UTC, Lilywhite House, just off the High Road, on Thursday, January 8, between 4.30 and 6.30pm.
