Why Crewe UTC?
What makes Crewe UTC unique?
State of the art facility with the latest industry standard equipment
We have a fully kitted out workshop with Lathes, Lazer Cutters, 3D PrintersETC. Upstairs is home to our design area where we have a computer suite with computer aided design software such as Indesign for students to bring their designs to life.
An employer engagement programme for all students
Students in all year groups will participate in employer engagement throughout their time at the UTC. Within their subjects, they will complete employer led projects which will be supported and evaluated by industry experts. Students will do a week’s worth of work experience in Year 10 and Year 12 and will also work with our employer partners for workshops, masterclasses, site visits, talks, external competitions, one to one mentoring and more!
Developing a well-rounded skill set
As well as working towards achieving a strong set of GCSEs and A Levels, we strive to prepare our students for their next steps after the UTC. This also means focussing on developing and building on a student’s skill set beyond the curriculum. Through the curriculum and employer engagement, we want our students to face challenges which will help them build skills in problem solving, teamwork, leadership, communication, time management, work ethic and most of all be confident in their abilities.
Treated as a young professional
We want our students to become familiar with a work place environment, so as well as offering opportunities to experience it first hand, we aim to treat our students as young professionals and have high expectations on behaviour and how students approach their education. We want to know what a student’s ambitions are and how we can support them on their journey to reach their goals!
We look beyond school
Everything we do at the UTC is to prepare our students to enter the world of work. We develop their skills, give them opportunities to boost their CVs, develop their skills in Engineering and Design and offer support every step of the way.
Our graduates have gone on to University, apprenticeships, further education and employment.
