South Bank Engineering UTC will be a new arrival on the educational scene in Lambeth. Opening in Brixton in 2016, the UTC will deliver a specialist curriculum with an engineering specialism to students aged 14-19. According to Dan Cundy, the Principal Designate, ‘there is a very real skills gap in the engineering sector, particularly in London. Major employers are desperate for young people with the right type of skills, with high value careers in engineering available’.
