As you approach the beginning of your GCSE or sixth form courses, you’ll be facing some important choices about your learning and the prospects this brings. Getting these decisions right will set you on a path to a great career. We’re really pleased that you are thinking of coming to UTC Swindon and we want to share some of the opportunities that the UTC can create for you.

Engineering and Cyber Security alongside Digital Technologies are growing sectors in our economy. The area has a high demand for employees with these skills. UTC Swindon offers high quality, specialist and innovative education for students aged 14 to 19 that will help you take advantage of career opportunities with national and global companies in this sector.

With us, you will be able to follow your passion for Engineering or Cyber Technologies while studying for GCSE, A Level, technical and professional qualifications and learn practical skills from the best in Industry. Working alongside employer partners, we are confident that students who attend UTC Swindon are given
the best start in a variety of progression routes into employment or higher education. Last year our students went onto university, an apprenticeship, sponsored degree programmes or employment.

UTC Swindon will offer you something different and we expect you to want something different:

  •  to follow your passion in Engineering or Cyber Technology while studying for your GCSE’s, A Levels or technical qualification
  • to learn independently through our employer-led projects and embrace the opportunities to work through challenges and projects set by our industry partners
  • to want the best chance of moving into employment or further and higher educations in your chosen field by embracing the professional business approach to education.

If you want to benefit from the latest technology in learning and be in an environment that feels more like being at work than school, then UTC Swindon could be for you.

We would warmly welcome you to join us in September.

Sam Knowlton, Executive Principal
