About us

UTC Trustees

UTC South Durham was established by three Founding Members, the University of Sunderland, Hitachi Rail Europe and Gestamp Tallent.  These members appoint a Board of Trustees to oversee the strategic and operational running of the UTC.  There are 11 Trustees; 6 are appointed directly by the Members while the other 5 consist of two parents, one staff member, one education expert and the Principal.  This page contains information on the governance of UTC South Durham.

Our Trustees come from a variety of relevant backgrounds and are passionate about the ethos and purpose of the UTC.
