Hilsea University Technical College

Penny Mordaunt MP welcomed the new University Technical College in Hilsea. 

Penny said, "'UTC Portsmouth' will give students aged 14 to 19 the chance to gain qualifications fit for careers in electrical and mechanical engineering and advanced manufacturing. Pupils would work around an 8.30am to 5pm daily timetable so they get familiar with a normal working day at the college, which will be funded by the Department for Education."

Penny Mordaunt MP has been a long time campaigner for more hands on skill based apprenticeships and was pleased to take part in the ground laying ceremony as construction started in 2016.
