Our key focus is to support young people prepare for the world of work, develop technical skills and to find meaningful careers. This includes apprenticeships, university, or employment. Partner organisations such as Sellafield Ltd and Manchester Metropolitan University worked together to create the UTC. The result is students have the opportunity to forge valuable relationships and experiences within the STEM industry in the North West and beyond.
UTCW’s primary focus is to prepare students for a high quality career within science, technology, and engineering. Students study academic and technical subjects through a range of GCSE and post-16 qualifications. We also offer students the opportunity to focus on developing their practical skills and to work directly with the region’s employers. Our dedicated personal development programme encourages students to challenge themselves by using their skills in Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative, and Communication in all aspects of their UTC career.
