University Technical Colleges (UTCs)

A UTC is an industry-orientated school designed for ambitious young people, aged 14-18, who have aspirations to become leading future innovators. They are funded by the government, are free to attend and are sponsored by a number of successful companies along with a University.

UTCs offer technically oriented courses of study (around 60% academic/40% practical), combining National Curriculum requirements such as GCSEs and A-Levels with technical and vocational elements. They also teach business and the use of ICT and offer clear routes into higher education or further learning in work. The study day is longer than in a typical school and is more in line with a commercial working day.

You can find out more on the University Technical Colleges' website.
