Navigate are delighted to be supporting the Ron Dearing University Technical College (UTC) over the coming months with the appointment of their new Principal Designate.
Located in the centre of Hull, which is due to take up the mantle of UK City of Culture in two years’ time, this exciting addition to the city’s educational landscape is scheduled to open its doors in September 2017 and will have capacity for up to 600 students. At its core, it aims to enable local young people to thrive in the digital economy and provide employers with the advanced technical skills they require.
The UTC is sponsored by the University of Hull,Â Siemens, Spencer Group, Ebuyer,Â KC and is also supported by Hull City Council. It will cater for students aged 14-19 and specialise in digital technology and mechatronics – a combination of mechanical engineering, computing and electronics as used in the design and development of manufacturing techniques. The UTC is seeking to appoint its Principal Designate later this year with the intention that the successful candidate would take up post at least one year before its proposed opening date.
