"It’s great to see the enthusiasm students at UTC Portsmouth have for STEM learning,” 

“Young men and women studying here are being taught to aim high and given a deep understanding of the sheer scope of opportunities that are available to them in the future.”

“I’ve been really impressed with the exciting ideas the students have shown me today as well as the fantastic questions they have asked.”

"UTCs impress me because they are not just training the next generation of STEM professionals and developing a much needed skills pipeline to the careers of the future, they are offering their students the opportunity to make the important connection between what they learn in the classroom and how it relates to the real world.”
