A college for students aged 14 to 18 which specialises in technical
studies and is sponsored by a university. It offers full time
courses which combine practical and academic studies. Employers are

late. Students who know what they want to do can often become bored
at school and so underachieve by the time they are 16.

Employers play a major part in UTCs. They help plan what students
are going to learn and ensure that the qualifications students gain
are what employers require. They also meet the students on work
placements in order to get to know them.
Students can either go onto to a higher level apprenticeship in
employment or onto a university. The UTC will help them decide
which is the best route for them.
This will vary but all offer GCSEs in at least English, maths and
science combined with a modern foreign language, a humanities
subject and practical and technical qualifications which are
recognised by employers and universities.
