Plans for a new University Technical College (UTC) based in Newhaven have received the thumbs up from the local community and teachers in a public consultation conducted before Christmas and being published this week.
The proposed college will give young people aged 14 – 19 the chance study subjects such as Maths, English and Sciences while gaining skills in engineering in a curriculum shaped by major employers.
A public consultation was launched in November across the catchment area of Worthing, Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne, Bexhill and Haywards Heath. Parents, students, school and college teachers, and community group leaders were asked for their views on the proposal to open in September 2015.
