College plan for Don Valley Stadium site

Plans are being firmed up for a University Technical College specialising in sports and life sciences on the site of Don Valley Stadium.

Already a Government-financed UTC for 14 to 19-year-olds, and specialising in advanced engineering and the creative and digital sectors, is being built in Shoreham Street.

Now the council is looking for a sponsor for a UTC with strong links with business and the universities as part of a proposed east end ‘learning campus’.
