Lord Baker Visits

In celebration of our partnership with one of the UTC’s leading partners, BAE Systems visited our students to inform them about the many opportunites available in the Engineering industry.


Representatives from the multinational defence, security, and aerospace company, which is based in Rochester, spoke directy to our students before presenting to them a scale model Typhoon Eurofighter jet which is showcased in the school for students to be inspired.

Representatives from Baker Dearing, including Lord Baker and Simon Connell, CEO, were present at this event to celebrate the fantastic partnership.

Mr Paul Cottam, Principal, said:







Waterfront UTC are delighted with BAE’s commitment as an Employer partner and believe that this partnership inspires and excites our students. BAE systems work closely with us, and understand the unique nature of our curriculum and opportunities that we provide our students, which results in  high quality employable young engineers.

As a University Technical College, Waterfront UTC works closely with a number of key local and national Employer partners to continually develop and deliver a first class curriculum which enables our students to access a range of professional opportunities.
