Employer Partners

Together with our founding members - the University of Sunderland, Hitachi Rail Europe and Gestamp Tallent - we're working with a range of businesses to give our students a fantastic insight into future careers.

Our business partners need skilled young people and have agreed to provide placement opportunities and training. A wide variety of businesses are actively involved in project activities and providing visits and placements. They will build mentoring relationships with students and support them in taking the first steps in their careers. They are doing this because they want to employ young people from the UTC.
