Buckingham Palace dinner with the Duke of York

IMG_20170508_223150_resized_20170510_092345102As a University Technical College, we are supported by the Baker Dearing Trust, which was set up by Lords Baker and Dearing in order to promote high quality technical education. The Duke of York is a patron of the Trust and invited Principals of all UTCs to dinner at Buckingham Palace. It was wonderful to hear the vision of the Duke of York and Lord Baker in developing UTCs like South Bank Engineering UTC to help give young people unrivalled opportunities and to help address skills shortages in the UK economy.

Hopefully we will be able to engage with the Duke further in the future – we are angling to secure an invitation to tea with a group of high-performing students!
