University Technical Colleges [UTCs] offer so much more than traditional schools. Providing education for 14-19 year olds, UTCs aim to develop the professionals of the future by focusing on one or two specialisms alongside a broader curriculum. It’s a new, different and exciting way to learn. UTCs work with local universities and employers to develop curriculums that challenge students and allow them to get real life learning experience via employer projects. Students benefit not just from the very best facilities and equipment used in the UTC’s specialist industry, but also from hands-on mentoring from professionals working in that industry.
This integration of technical, practical and academic learning creates an educational pathway designed to lead directly towards prosperous careers. With at least 40% of students’ time spent on the UTC’s technical specialism, there is no better preparation for the world of work. Even better, UTCs are smaller than traditional secondary schools, are not academically selective and do not charge fees, allowing students from all backgrounds to thrive in these exceptional environments.
