Elutec (East London University Technical College) is a school for 14-19 year olds in East London where students can pursue technical qualifications in product design, engineering and technology as part of their GCSE and A Level curriculum.
The UTC is partnered with leading businesses and organisations who specialise in these technical fields. Along with University College London (UCL), the UTC’s main sponsor, they help to develop Elutec’s exciting curriculum, which includes practical employer and university-led projects and work experience programmes, as well as traditional classroom based learning for more academic subjects like English.
Elutec provides a rounded technical, practical and academic educational experience that helps students develop the expertise they need to move on to an apprenticeship or university and lead successful careers in future. Elutec focusses particularly on engineering, product design and technology because these are areas where there are currently skills gaps in London and the South East and there is a need for skilled technicians.
