Help shape the future
Because the creative and digital industries depend on innovation, it’s vital that skills continually evolve.
These are exciting times – especially with the massive amount of activity taking place at MediaCityUK. One in ten jobs in the North West are now in the creative and digital industries.
Yet it’s also widely accepted that there’s a shortage of people with the necessary abilities – whether academic, technical or practical – to meet the industries’ needs.
The purpose of UTC@MediaCityUK is to swell the pool of talent for the industry to recruit from.
As an employer, you can get involved in many different ways. The national UTC website shows some examples on how employers have been involved in other UTCs.
Becoming an employer partner
We encourage digital and creative sector companies of all sizes and expertise to get involved. They can help to shape courses, provide expert tuition, talk to the students at open days, provide live briefs and offer work placements.

Set our students an ’employer challenge’!
Our students love live briefs and employer challenges. Why don’t you download our employer challenge template and give them something to sink their teeth into!
Employing our graduates
Students graduating from UTC@MediaCityUK – either at 16 or 18 – will be perfectly prepared to enter work in the digital industry – whichever sector the role may be within.
Our current employer partners, including Adobe, BBC, Cisco, dock10, ITV, and Oracle, have help design and deliver our curriculum. This ensures that our students get the best possible preparation and are ready and able with the skills and competencies you need.
