Another successful Leigh UTC business breakfast

Friday 12th May saw the latest successful business breakfast at The Leigh UTC. Master of ceremonies for the event was Clive Barker, deputy chair of the academy’s governing body.

The academy was delighted to welcome sponsor, Breakthrough Funding, to open the presentations with a useful guide on the various ways that businesses, such as those that work with The Leigh UTC, can fund themselves with a particular emphasis on R&D tax credits.

Principal, Steve Leahey, shared plans for ICT apprenticeships at The Leigh UTC commencing in September 2017. He explained to delegates about the success of core maths learning at the academy demonstrating this with the use of a recent video which can be viewed here

The breakfast concluded with an inspiring presentation by student, Huw Prosser, MD of Blooware Technology. Huw recounted his journey of coming to study at the Leigh UTC and how the academy has helped him to set up his business.
