The Sheffield City Region Growth Plan aims to generate 30,000 jobs in highly skilled occupations and to bring 6,000 additional businesses to the area in the next 10 years. The Healthcare Technologies sector and the IT and Creative/Digital Industries are two of the three key sectors alongside Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing that will propel this growth.
UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park for Human Sciences (Healthcare and Sports Science) and Computing will be at the forefront of developing a new generation of talented, versatile individuals able to seize the opportunities that lie ahead of us in health and wellbeing using the latest technology and cutting-edge sports research, and for those interested in computing to apply this leading-edge learning elsewhere in the sector as well.
UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park will be located in a brand new purpose-built £10m building on the visionary new Olympic Legacy Park in the Don Valley between Rotherham and Sheffield. The Park is on the main tram link to Meadowhall and is a short bus ride from Sheffield’s main transport hubs for bus and rail.
The Olympic Legacy Park is a £55m project bringing together public and private funding. It will host professional rugby of both codes as well as professional basketball, and sits alongside the English Institute of Sport, Ice Sheffield, Sheffield Arena and the Sheffield Hallam Athletics and Sports parks, all of which host international competitions and professional sport. The Park will also be home to the new Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, a collaboration between the Sheffield Hallam Sports Engineering Research Centre, the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine and the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust. It will provide a unique environment, unrivalled anywhere else in the UK, for learning in both of UTC Sheffield OLP’s specialist areas of study.
UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park will open in September 2016 and will offer a total of 600 student places by 2019.
