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.

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.
