UTC leaver destinations

The impressive track record of student destinations after leaving UTCs is testament to the quality of this distinctive educational experience. Because of their unique offer, UTCs provide a broad choice of pathways at 18 either to university, higher & degree apprenticeships, or directly into a career. Our leavers are significantly more likely to secure a higher level apprenticeship compared to mainstream school leavers. They are also significantly more likely to go onto a STEM related degree at university.
