As you approach the beginning of GCSEs or Post-16, you’ll be facing some important choices about your learning. You’ll know that getting these decisions right will set you on the path to a great career. We’re really pleased that you’re thinking of coming to UTC Swindon and taking advantage of the many opportunities we can offer you.
With us, you’ll be able to follow your areas of interest in either Engineering or Digital Technologies while studying GCSEs, A-levels and developing invaluable practical and work-readiness skills from the best in the industry that will give you a competitive advantage. This is because UTC Swindon has the support of local, high profile industry and academic partners who help to shape the curriculum and work closely with our students.
We believe that students who attend UTC Swindon, which has recently joined the Activate Learning Education Trust, are given the best start in a variety of progression routes. Last year our students progressed on to university, an apprenticeship, a sponsored degree programme or employment.
UTC Swindon will offer you something different. And we expect you to want something different:
- to follow your interest in Engineering or Digital Technologies while studying for your GCSEs or A-levels
- to embrace opportunities to work through challenges and projects set by our industry partners
