The first thing you’ll notice about our UTC is that we identify ourselves as a college, not a school. When you start here in Year 10 you are joining a college. This is reflected in the more mature environment we have created for our students, and we feel helps prepare you for what lies ahead for your time working with us. You will work alongside leading employers, have University led masterclasses and you will have the opportunity to experience the broad range of career opportunities that are available through yearly work experience.
Alongside your traditional GCSE curriculum you study technical qualifications that give you the skills employers are looking for in their future workforce – how do we know this? Because the employers themselves have helped us shape the curriculum, and are hands-on in daily college life providing projects for our students along with masterclasses and the opportunities to visit them and see first-hand where you could be working. Nowhere else provides you with these opportunities at age 14.

The focus on these attributes and capacities in the curriculum ensure our students develop the ‘character’ to succeed in the modern world.
Here at SUTC, we do things a little differently. Whether you’re in Y10 or Y12, our focussed curriculum provides you with the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in Engineering and Computer Science, all whilst studying for technical and academic qualifications.
Our employer partners and University links ensure you’ll finish your education with the experience and confidence to pursue a successful career in whatever you decide. Our industry leaders will offer guidance on careers and provide students with opportunities like no other, just one of the ways we help you to stand out from the crowd.
Our partner-led projects give you the skills and knowledge you need to progress. With the combined knowledge of local, national and internationally known organisations, we offer students access to a level of unprecedented expertise and the opportunity to work on real life projects.
Our tutors have been in your shoes, they’ve climbed the ranks and know what it’s like to be starting out as a career-minded student. Equipped with years of industry experience, they are experts in their fields and will be there to pass on all the tips and tricks they’ve learnt along the way.
