At UTC Plymouth we always encourage feedback, as we believe it can only make the school a better place. We try our hardest to work on any suggested improvements and with our new parent forum initiative it provides a platform for parents to speak about their son/daughter's education, which we think is vital. Here are just a few testimonials from parents, students and others:
"To everyone at UTC Plymouth, I would just like to say what a great two years Nathan has had at the College, ending with some excellent GCSE results and employment with a local Design Engineers. Thank you to all his teachers for the time you have given him and the encouragement to do well"
"UTC Plymouth is providing its students with the real world engineering skills needed by employers, so that as employees they are able to contribute to the success of a business early in their career"
- Nick Tripp, Research and Development Manager, Spinnaker
" Since my son joined the UTC his confidence and belief in himself has improved within a short time. I was extremely impressed with the way my concern about him was dealt with (teenage issues) by the Principal.
They gave him the encouragement and belief in himself to try something new which helped enrich his experience.
He has a tutor who ' really listens' to him as a person rather than feeling he is a name on a tick box for tasks to be completed. This tutor has build rapport, uses humour which I feel makes learning more fun. "
"I would like to thank you all at UTC for your efforts in yesterday’s activities, my son was over the moon with the result and my wife and I are truly grateful"
"I love getting to mix my passion for Engineering with normal school subjects. Being at UTC Plymouth has helped me get ready for University and prepared me for future work."
"The relationship that has developed between UTC Plymouth and The Wrigley Company has been valuable for both ourselves and the students that we have met. The fantastic facilities and culture at the college have given these young adults an opportunity to learn and grow and this has resulted in us being able to start to recruit the next generation of talented associates into our business"
