Please feel free to leave a question in the chat and a UTC Leeds representative will be in touch.
University Technical Colleges (UTCs) have been designed to meet the needs of employers for up-and-coming young talent with the right skill sets and knowledge to fill the jobs of tomorrow. UTCs take students as young as 14 and offer a combination of technical qualifications alongside GCSEs and A Levels. This combination of academic and technical learning is unique, equipping students for professional careers through places at top universities, as well as through higher and advanced apprenticeships.
Opened in September 2016, UTC Leeds offers high-tech, cutting-edge facilities and a first-class educational experience. The UTC is the first school in the Leeds City Region to provide high-quality academic and vocational training focused specifically on the engineering and advanced technology sectors.
The curriculum is developed with global and regional employers as well as the University of Leeds. The learning experience includes a broad range of activities with industry professionals and academic experts.
UTC Leeds is supported by over 70 employers, including major industry brands such as AGFA, Siemens and Unilever. Working regularly with employer partners in a professional work environment where expectations are high ensures that students gain the work ethic and attitude that employers are looking for.
Project work is focused on solving real world issues, not just business issues, but also social, medical and environmental challenges. Inspirational events and national competitions form a key part of students’ studies. In addition, students are able to experience a range of city-wide business events featuring leading speakers from across the sciences, and industry, supporting their learning while contributing to an enjoyable, varied educational experience.
For sixth-form students, there are a variety of routes to professional careers available involving different combinations of A Levels and/or technical qualifications, dependent on whether an apprenticeship or university route is preferred.
