£10m UTC college for Don Valley Stadium site

The government has approved plans for a £10m university technical college (UTC) on the site of the Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield.

There will be places for up to 600 students, aged 14-19, and it will specialise in human sciences and digital technologies.

It will be the second UTC in the city when it opens in 2016.

The Don Valley Stadium was closed by Sheffield City Council in 2013 and work to clear the site began in November.

The new college is being backed by The Sheffield College and Sheffield Hallam University alongside employers including Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust.
