Andrew Mitchell MP visits Birmingham’s first University Technical College to see opportunities for Suttonians


Andrew Mitchell MP has visited Aston University Engineering Academy, Birmingham’s first new University Technical College, to see firsthand the cutting edge engineering and scientific training which is now available to Sutton Coldfield’s young people.

Mr Mitchell met with Principal, Lee Kilgour, and Vice Principal, Daniel Locke-Wheaton, who gave him a tour of the brand new technical Academy which has been developed under the Coalition Government’s Free Schools Programme. The curriculum of technical Academies is influenced by local employers who provide work experience for students and often employment once students have completed apprenticeships or higher education.

Andrew Mitchell MP said, “I was very impressed with the state-of-the-art building and equipment which will allow young people from Sutton to learn in a very practical way.”

“Teachers with high-quality technical experience are delivering the cornerstone of engineering and technical qualifications at this new University Technical College. I would encourage any of my young constituents who are interested in engineering to contact the Academy for more information.”
