The Scarborough UTC curriculum is about imagination and challenge; it is about harnessing the ability of each and every student. Our curriculum will inspire students; to overcome adversity; to work together and to achieve great things. We will motivate students to achieve high levels of success by embedding relevant teaching of technical and advanced engineering knowledge in every subject, through our employer and university-led curriculum set in a business-like environment.
Our curriculum will provide a progression to good careers, further or higher education and will:
- Manage the students’ progression through education, training and apprenticeships into higher education or employment with further training
- Nurture the students’ personal qualities and talents and respond to their enthusiasm
- Provide specialist teaching and mentoring from teaching staff, university lecturers, and engineers and specialists from industry.
Our position on the EBacc
The English Baccalaureate
Almost all Key Stage 4 students in this UTC will take GCSEs in English, maths and science. In addition, they will take a number of Technical Qualifications linked to our specialisms.
However, the governors have decided that it would not be appropriate for this UTC to comply with government proposed policy requiring that 90% of our students should take exams in the full set of EBacc GCSE subjects, which include foreign languages and history or geography alongside English, maths and science.
