The study of technical subjects is vital in developing the core knowledge, skills and understanding needed by all good engineers and computer scientists. In particular being able to work in practical environments designing, and engineering products and systems, and building networks and writing and testing programmes prepares our students extremely well for successful careers in engineering and cyber.
Core subjects comprise of a range of A levels. These are designed to offer complementary study alongside our technical courses. Alternatively they can be studied in a suite of up to 4 A levels. Our Sixth Form team will happily discuss the best combinations based on your career plans and potential destinations.
Our Sixth Form has a minimum entry requirement for all A level and Level 3 courses of 5 standard passes at GCSE (currently grade 4 and above) including Maths and English. Some of our courses have specific GCSE grade requirements so read the Sixth Form@Scarborough UTC booklet carefully to be aware of these. We are committed to helping students succeed in their studies in order for them to gain the university or apprenticeship place that they require.
Our engineering facilities are like no other, and combined with our industry led curriculum we provide our students with the necessary skills and qualifications that our engineering employer partners are looking for, in-order to fill the enormous national skills gap in this field.
The Cybersecurity pathway is aimed at ambitious students who want to pursue a career in this ever-growing field of digital technology. From the fundamental principles of computing to computer forensic investigation, students will build a thorough understanding of computer networks, how they communicate and how their networks are put together.
