UTC@MediaCityUK’s Chair of Governors, Graham Cowley, has confirmed the appointment of Ruth Bradbury as the University Technical College’s new Principal. Ms Bradbury, Principal of Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio school since its opening in 2013, was seconded to the UTC in the autumn as Interim Principal and has led the college for most of this academic year.

The technical and creative college for 14-18 year olds is based in the heart of the northern digital media centre in MediaCityUK, Salford, which also hosts the BBC, ITV, Ericsson and more than 250 smaller media and digital businesses.

Graham Cowley said: “Working with Ruth in an interim capacity over the past six months has been stimulating and inspirational. She is an experienced Principal who has brought renewed energy and focus to the College that will create an exciting and successful future benefitting all our students. I am delighted she has accepted the role on a permanent basis.”

Ruth Bradbury said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as permanent Principal at UTC@MediaCityUK. When I joined on an interim basis I was immediately struck by the perfect location, the enthusiasm of the students and staff, and the quality and scope of the facilities and industry links. There really is nowhere better to prepare for a career in the digital media sector, and I feel privileged that I can continue to lead the UTC as it becomes a flagship for Aldridge Education and the UTC model.”
