The SUTC Curriculum
The aims of our curriculum are to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed by good engineers and computer scientists to be able to progress in to the best career opportunities in the engineering and computer science fields both locally, regional, and nationally. The intention is that a significant element of the curriculum focuses on the core skills needed to succeed in these areas; these are literacy, numeracy, engineering and computer science technical skills and professional values and employability skills.
All students follow a programme of learning designed to develop core technical skills in fabrication, machining, welding, CAD and CNC. In KS4 engineering is a core subject. The Scarborough UTC employability and technical skills curriculum provides high quality opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding, alongside our professional values, which will help them access the significant opportunities available in the engineering and computer science sectors and thus help to narrow the skills gap in STEM industries.
