At this time of year, we know students are carefully considering their education options for September – and this can be daunting.
There are so many aspects to consider: subject choices, school culture and location – is it the right fit for you?
University Technical Colleges (UTCs) offer a new approach to learning. If you dream of becoming an engineer, scientist, or computer specialist, then a UTC can be the perfect start to your career.
But we really aren’t for everyone. We have a longer school day, we work closely with industry employers on real-life technical projects and our curriculum is oriented towards technical qualifications, as well as traditional GCSEs and A-levels. We are for those students that are keen to work hard, have a drive to succeed in a career in the technical industry and want to take advantage of this competitive edge.
Think you’re up for the challenge?
Here is what our students had to say about life at a UTC:
“My time at UTC Heathrow so far has been splendid. Making friends and getting to know the teachers has been fantastic. I was most attracted to the specialism in engineering, a sector that I look forward to working in after I leave education. The services and high end equipment on offer equip us with the engineering skills we need. I am loving my time here and I am looking forward to leaving the UTC with the best grades.” Year 12 student
“I feel more confident as a person being here at UTC Heathrow. The grades I have achieved will help me to go on and study maths, physics, chemistry and further maths.”
“UTC Heathrow has helped me to achieve my grades by having smaller classes, the longer days and a professional environment to study in.”
