Find out more about health sciences UTC
The £10 million Health Futures UTC is currently being built at the former Sandwell College site in High Street, West Bromwich and is due to open in September 2015.
An open event is being held at West Bromwich Town Hall in High Street on Monday 6 October 2014 to enable parents and prospective students to find out more about the UTC.
There will be an opportunity to meet the Principal Designate, Mr Robert Fell, and the UTC partners at the event, which is taking place between 6pm and 8pm.
The UTC is sponsored by the University of Wolverhampton, the West Midlands Ambulance Service, the Midcounties Co-operative Pharmacy, with 23 employer and educational partners including NHS Foundation Trusts in the Black Country and Birmingham.
It will serve 600 pupils and have 60 staff, and is set to feature science laboratories, simulation and skills units, a mock hospital ward, a visualisation centre, IT suites, class and seminar rooms, café and a rooftop games area and gym.
Mr Fell said: “We’re really looking to sharing our vision for the Health Futures UTC at our open event on Monday, 6 October. Anyone who is interested in studying a course with us, or just finding out more about what we have planned, is welcome to come along and discuss this exciting development.”
The new UTC, which was approved by the Government last year, will be built by BAM Construction, which has been awarded a total of 16 UTCs throughout the UK reflecting their proven ability to deliver these specialist buildings.
The UTC is now recruiting students for Year 10 and Year 12 places and will serve the communities of Birmingham, the Black Country, Solihull and North Worcestershire.
