South Bank Engineering UTC students will be expected to play a positive role in the community. They will be given a range of assignments, which will involve making a positive impact in their local area. These assignments will be accredited and will assist students with their professional development portfolios.
Students will be expected to use their areas of expertise but will be challenged to develop their skill set too. For example, students may be asked to help local charities improve their social media profiles, or may be tasked with training elderly people in how to navigate the internet at their local public library. Similarly they may be split into teams to conduct conservation work or to support the literacy of students in local primary schools.
