UTC Derby Pride Park welcome our Year 9 students -Induction Day

It was fantastic to welcome our Year 9 students to UTC Derby Pride Park for their Induction day. During the day students met with their tutors, had a welcome presentation from our Associate Principal – Mr Lee Kirkwood and Executive Principal – Mr Nick Crew before spending the rest of the day in their Specialist Areas.

Our Engineering students completed a carousel of events:

  • An introduction to the Workshops
  • Practical drawing activity
  • A Team task set by Loughborough University – Success in a Box activity that involved students looking at the production process of a MIRA shower and deciding the order of production and assembly alongside different careers within the company

Our Health & Social Care students started to explore the importance of effective communication in health care provisions, using a mix of communication games, discussions, and written work.

We look forward to supporting our students in the future on their journey with us.
