Ron Dearing University Technical College’s newly-appointed principal says she took the position to help transform the jobs market along the Humber.

Set to open in 2017, the college will train young people in digital and engineering skills. Sarah Pashley says she wants to put Hull and the Humber on the map for good education.

She said: “Huge employers are telling us that our local people do not have the skills to take up employment with them. So what the UTC is about is working with these employers, directly involving them in teaching and learning, curriculum development and the qualifications, to make sure that our kids actually can take up fantastic careers with those employers.

“The young people I talk to are very aware of it and they are aware of all these great employers and I know they’re very keen to actually join them. Young people want to work with these companies, so we need to give them the skills, the knowledge and the experience to allow them to get those jobs.”
