News & Events Public Consultation Meeting In Tuckswood Primary School..

TEN Group, the University of East Anglia and employer sponsors Group Lotus, Gardline and Future Marine Services are in the planning and development stage of a new University Technical College (UTC) that will serve Norfolk and North Suffolk from September 2014.

As part of the development process, we would be very interested to hear you views on the UTC and what it will mean for both education and employment in the area – your views can help us to shape the UTC into something truly great for Norfolk.

We are currently undergoing a period of public consultation with all stakeholders. This process began on Monday 18th February and will continue until Friday 5th April 2013. As part of this process we are holding an open consultation and information event at Tuckswood Primary Schoool on Tuesday 12th March between 4pm and 7pm and we would be very pleased if you were able to join us.

You can find a map locating the school here.

The format for the event is quite informal; you can drop in at any time between 4pm and 7pm. At the event you will be able to meet some of the team of educators and local employers who are behind the planning, design and promotion of the UTC and you will be able to examine plans for the building, the educational vision for how the UTC will operate and, of course, ask any questions you may have around the UTC and what it will mean for this area.

We are particularly interested in gathering feedback and thoughts on the following:

  • The intention to enter into a Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State/Department of Education to construct the University Technical College
  • The UTC education vision and plan
  • The UTC specialisms
  • The UTC site plans
  • The transport and travel plans
  • The impact on the local community

We do hope that you are able to take up this opportunity to join us and to help shape a great new educational institution for Norfolk.
