Every Monday afternoon, Lincoln UTC students travel to The University of Lincoln to take part in an afternoon of sport. The provision is led by specialist coaches who provide an array of sporting activities including wheelchair basketball, football, hockey, dance and volleyball. This enables students to try a wide range of activities and, if they wish, compete against other schools and colleges through the UTC sports teams. This is compulsory for all Year 10 and 11 students.
Year 12 and 13 students do not have timetabled lessons on a Monday afternoon. Students are able to use this time to take part in an array of activities including volunteering, charitable work or educational activities.
All students taking part in sport must wear Lincoln UTC clothing range. Uniform Direct, a highly successful Lincoln-based company, provide a full range of sportswear. By visiting their store at the Pelham Centre, Lincoln, this will allow students to try items on and secure the correct sizing before a purchase is made. Alternatively, all items can be purchased online at www.uniform-direct.com
We work closely with Siemens to identify the ‘Top Engineering Talent’ at Lincoln UTC. Students entering Years 10 and 12 can apply for one of five Siemens Scholarships. This award provides students with an 18 month programme which includes bespoke opportunities including mentoring, work experience, attendance at events and provides a real insight into careers with this prestigious company. Annual application rounds open in September and close in mid November. The scholarship commences in January and last for 18 months.
Lincoln UTC is working in collaboration with Siemens and The University of Lincoln to take part in the Greenpower Challenge. A team of Engineers in Years 12 and 13 have been selected to design, build and race an electric car. The team will enter the national competition and have the opportunity to race their creation around professional race tracks around the country.
Lincoln UTC is proud to work alongside the Royal Air Force Association to provide unique opportunities for students with a passion for aviation. UTC students can apply for a RAFA Bursary; they can be awarded up to £2,000 to support them to achieve their ambitions in securing a carer in aviation. Annual application rounds open in September and close in mid November. The scholarships commence in December and are paid in two instalments, subject to students meeting attendance requirements.
There are a number of characteristics that stand UTC students out from the crowd. One such characteristic is their ability to engage with and drive innovation. Each student selects an aspect of science or engineering which they wish to pursue to a higher level. Working alongside business experts and university research students, UTC students will design and deliver their own innovation projects. They may chose to use their projects to complete the Extended Project Qualifications, contributing towards achieving the Technical Baccalaureate Qualification.
We are keen to enrich the experiences of our students outside of the world of work. We take part in local sports events including the Santa Fun Run and the Colour Run. Trips have been made to hear The Messiah and see the Birmingham Ballet Company perform in Nottingham. Students in Year 12 have been skydiving and trips are planned to the Gravity Fields event each September. Join the UTC and wide your experiences in the arts, culture and sports.
