FOCUS ON WHITBY & SCARBOROUGH FEATURE SPONSOR NEW UNIVERSITY TECHNICAL COLLEGE


In September 2016 a brand new University Technical College (UTC) for 14 – 18-year-old students is opening In Scarborough. With a specialism in Advanced Engineering and Computer Science this facility will bring a revolutionary change to education and training in the area.


£47 MILLION DEVELOPMENT Scarborough University Technical College is funded by the Department for Education and is open to everyone aged 14-18. The college is part of a £47 million development combining Coventry University’s new Scarborough Campus and state-of-the-art sports village development which will create an outstanding educational and recreational campus in the heart of Scarborough.


Scarborough UTC is sponsored by employers and companies from the region, including blue chip international companies, the marine and renewables sector and their supply chain along with The University of Hull.


EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUM The UTC has worked closely with its sponsors to ensure that the curriculum will not only cover the standard school GCSEs curriculum for 14-16 year olds, but much more. The UTC will deliver well rounded, motivated, inspired and business ready young adults with the technical and personal competencies to ensure their future employability. To date 99% of graduates leaving a UTC have gone directly in to employment, University or further training.


SUBJECT AVAILABILITY


In Scarborough there will be 3 engineering pathways available, Engineering Design, Engineering Manufacturing and Electronics & Control Systems, these subjects will be taught alongside the national curriculum. These pathways have been endorsed by the regional companies including those working in the offshore renewables maritime sectors and notably the Royal Navy, who are officially affiliated with Scarborough UTC.


BESPOKE STUDY PROGRAMMES For learners who have completed their GCSEs (aged 16) a programme of study is offered with one of more of the engineering pathways at the heart of the programme which is enhanced with A levels including maths alongside a specialist project qualification.


To ensure learners study to current industry standard the UTC will be equipped with modern engineering and specialist equipment that reflects that used by local employers.


This is a full education programme for both age groups and to fit this in the UTC will operate a longer school day and year than most schools or colleges. The day will commence at 9 am and finish at 4.30pm. This is also planned to replicate industry working practice which will help to prepare graduates for their future working careers.


Scarborough UTC is open to learners from a wide catchment area which includes; Scarborough, Whitby, Bridlington, Pickering, Malton, Driffield and all the surrounding areas.
