Working with employers, universities and the public sector is very important to us for a variety
First and foremost, the real-world experience that it affords our students, is second to none. By working with a carefully-curated collection of award-winning businesses, universities and public bodies, our students can build an invaluable bank of contacts in the areas of work they are interested in entering, after they graduate from us.
As well as having all the traditional curriculum qualifications under their belts, our students also gain the wealth of relevant skills employers look for in potential job candidates.
By brokering prospective career opportunities for our students, we give them the confidence and
motivation to apply for that all-important job or university place.
Our employer partners play an integral role in making all this possible. Last year, students in UTCs secured relevant placements, mentors, made visits to industry, completed industry inspired project-based learning; alongside masterclasses and seminar afternoons. This led to unconditional UCAS offers, and jobs and internships with our business partners being secured by our year 13 students. Students at UTCs are significantly less likely to become NEET than the national average. For further information go to Our Destinations page.
