Each UTC has its own policy around recruitment, however, most offer an education to pupils at the start of Key Stage 4. This can be 13 or 14 years old depending on local education provision.
In 2017, The Leigh UTC in Dartford became the first to open a pre-UTC feeder school at Key Stage 3 (11-year-olds). Recruitment at 11 has been successful and the feeder school has quickly become oversubscribed. More UTCs are expected to open.
Contact your local UTC to find out more about their individual recruitment policy.
