The first Technical School in the country opens in Stockport

brianSK1, Stockport Technical opened its doors to students last week. The school is the first technical school in the country and is pioneering a fresh approach to learning with a firm focus on "education to prepare you to earn a living". The school enrolled 100 students and is full for the first year.

Philippa Ollerhead, School Principal said "I am delighted to be leading such an innovative school and am passionate about providing a unique learning experience for our students which enables them to enjoy school, and to learn in a warm and caring environment. Students will understand the value of their education when they can clearly see how it links to their future employment.

The school will provide young people aged 14-19 with a real chance of maximizing their eventual employability, by offering them vocational qualifications such as Engineering, Motor Vehicle Engineering, Construction, Health and Social Care and Pharmaceutical Science alongside key subjects from the National Curriculum, including GCSEs in English, Mathematics, Science, Computer Science, Physical Education, Psychology, and Product Design. Brian Bradley, Partner at Clarke Nicklin and one of the four Directors of the school commented; "As a firm of accountants in Stockport we strongly believe in supporting local educational initiatives and establishments. This school is the first of its kind and something which we think will add great value to these industry sectors. It is aimed at young people who are motivated, ambitious and have a clear idea of what they want to do in life. The school will maximize student’s achievements and help to get them ‘work-ready’! We are extremely proud to be involved with SK1."
