August 2023 saw the UTC’s latest set of destinations and qualification results. The purpose of the UTC is to help prepare young people for the world of work and to ensure that they are career and life ready. UTCs are best measured by career progression and destinations; we are very pleased yet again with these outcomes:
- For our Year 13 leavers: All who wanted to have gone to University and all went to study STEM degrees (including Mechanical Engineering, Product Design, Aerospace Engineering, Astrophysics, Cyber Security, Mechatronics, Computer Science).
- A high proportion have secured Apprenticeships – 6 times the national average - covering a wide range of sectors (including civil engineering, mechanical engineering, maintenance, welding and fabrication, toolmaking, design and IT).
- Yet again a very high proportion of our Year 11 and 13 leavers have a positive destination in education, employment or training. Our NEET numbers are very low compared with other providers both locally and nationally.
- The UTC was ranked 7th in the country out of 2300 Post-16 providers for apprenticeship starts from L3 (latest DfE performance tables).
