Local MP visits UTC South Durham

On Friday the 6th of October Phil Wilson, the local MP for Sedgefield, came to visit UTC South Durham.

He spent time chatting to the UTC Student Leadership team about his views on politics and his role as an MP for the local area. Kody Davidson, Year 11 member of the Student Leadership Team, said, ‘I really enjoyed meeting him, it really opened my eyes to the world of politics.’

A tour of the Engineering Hall gave Mr Wilson the opportunity to see the fantastic new machinery and facilities available to students at the UTC and he was impressed by the opportunities that the UTC offers young people in his constituency.

The final part of his visit involved him being interviewed by our TV News team – look out for the film on our website soon!
