Harry Wade has progressed to an apprenticeship after his Key Stage 4 studies at UTC Leeds. The company approached the UTC about potential candidates for their apprenticeship and the UTC was able to recommend Harry.

Harry joined the UTC aged 14 because he enjoyed engineering. “It felt like a better choice than my old school because they only offered one class for design and technology and all the equipment was out of date.

“The UTC is a good school for the engineering side and a good school overall. I’ve enjoyed it and I’ve made a lot of good friends.”

Harry feels he’s had good opportunities at the UTC, including securing his apprenticeship. “Through school I’ve got an apprenticeship in mechanical engineering at Leeds Vacuum Formers, just down the road.”

Leeds Vacuum Formers where Harry is now working was founded in 1987 and operates nationally making high quality thermoformed packaging with a particular emphasis on reducing environmental impact. Alongside his work, Harry will also study for a qualification
at the Printworks campus of Leeds City College.
