On Friday 10 May, we welcomed Lord Baker, the inspiration and driving force behind the UTC movement, to UTC Swindon.
As part of his visit, Lord Baker went on a tour of the UTC with current Year 11 student Gabby and took the time to meet as many staff and students as possible. He stopped to speak with students about their experiences of the UTC and find out what their future plans were.
With his last visit being when the UTC was still being built, Lord Baker was very impressed with the modern facilities, its large engineering workshop and the students he spoke with and how much they were achieving.
Following the tour, Lord Baker was able to sit down and speak with UTC staff and Principal, Jon Oliver, about the college’s development and plans.
We look forward to welcoming Lord Baker back to UTC Swindon again soon.
