Tottenham UTC - an innovative and exciting project

Tottenham UTC has been all over the media recently with the call by the UK Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, encouraging football clubs to be more involved with education.  Tottenham are one of the clubs that seized the initiative and sponsored one early on.

Several members of the-learning-crowd are directly involved with the development of this innovative and exciting project. When full it will be the largest UTC in the country with 924 students.  Opening in September 2014, progress in fitting out the building is well underway.  All the spaces in the UTC are innovative, exciting, large - and dedicated to learning - no matter where the students are.  There will be great interest to see it working next year.

The main sponsors are Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Middlesex University, supported by several significant business partners: Festo, National Instruments, Fusion Leisure and Mindsets.

Despite the obvious sporting link, the focus of the UTC is the Technology and Science for Sport, Health and Engineering.

If opens in September 2014,
