“I am delighted that the Department for Education has decided that the University of Lincoln’s proposal for a University Technical College (UTC) in Lincoln for up to 640 pupils, aged 14 to 19 years old, should be approved and the project proceed to the ‘pre-opening’ stage.
“This UTC, developed in partnership with our University and employers, will help provide a new generation of school leavers in and around Lincoln with the technical knowledge and skills that industry wants.
“I know there is much to be done before the Secretary of State can enter into a Funding Agreement and, by doing so, give approval for the Lincoln UTC to open, hopefully in September next year, but the progression of the application to the pre-opening stage is a very significant step forward.
“May I pay tribute to the tireless work of Professor Mary Stuart, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, Mr John Allen, the Principal & Chief Executive of Lincoln College and all at Siemens, led by Nick Muntz, without whom this bid would not have seen the light of day.”
