Health Futures UTC is a school for 14-19 year olds in West Bromwich that specialises in healthcare and health sciences. Students can pursue technical qualifications in these areas alongside traditional GCSEs and A Levels in English, maths, science and humanities.
The UTC is partnered with leading organisations connected with healthcare, which help to build and deliver its unique curriculum that combines technical, academic and practical learning. As well as classroom-based studies, students at Health Futures UTC participate in work experience programmes and practical projects that are organised by the UTC's partners. This helps them gain hands-on experience and direct insight into a wide range of health careers such as nursing, paramedic services, radiography, pathology, physiotherapy and pharmacy within the NHS and private sector.
Students acquire robust qualifications and transferable skills that are welcomed by employers and universities both within and outside the healthcare sector. Their well-rounded education prepares students for their next steps, whether they choose apprenticeship, university or full-time employment.
