Key Stage 4

For the second year running students made good progress from their starting points at the UTC. The national Progress 8 headline measure looks at student progress from KS2 to KS4.  Of course, we only have impact on the last two years of this journey and have therefore calculated the Progress 8 measure from the time they start at the UTC until the time they complete KS4.

Upon entry to the UTC all students complete GL Assessments to provide baselines, these are comparative assessments which are externally marked. The Progress 8 score for the UTC from their baseline in Year 10 is +0.18.

Progress 8 is not the most appropriate performance measure for university technical colleges, studio schools and some further education colleges. These establishments typically start educating pupils at age 14, with a focus on preparing pupils for their future careers by providing an integrated academic and professional education.

“Other headline measures, particularly pupil destinations, are more important for these establishments.” (DfE Performance Tables Statement 2018)

 

Key Stage 5

Key Stage 5 results improved with more students achieving the top grades in Engineering. 31% of students achieved the equivalent of at least one grade at A or A*.

Destinations

Many students have secured places in apprenticeships or in further education, including Year 11 students choosing to stay at Crewe UTC to continue their studies in Engineering and other subjects. Some students secured apprenticeships with some of our employer partners Bentley and OSL. Year 13 students have secured places at university or on degree apprenticeships within Engineering fields.

Progress 8 Evaluation for Summer 2018 Examination Results

At Crewe UTC, we are pleased to say that our students make great progress in the 75 weeks that they spend with us from arrival at the start of Year 10.

On joining the UTC our students are roughly a whole grade below where they should be and during the time spent with us they not only make the rate of progress expected at Key Stage 4 but also make up most of the gap from the time of joining the UTC.

The vast majority of our students do not study the English Baccalaureate as they attend the UTC for a specialist curriculum concentrating, in the main on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The UTC has taken note of the following statement from DfE in reaching a rounded judgement, that at Crewe, student outcomes are at least good and destination rates are oustanding:

Progress 8 is not the most appropriate performance measure for university technical colleges, studio schools and some further education colleges.

Successful destinations for 2018 Leavers were 100% with all students in employment, education or training:

Further Education: 78%

Apprenticeships: 16%

Employment: 6%

NEET: 0%


Destinations

One of our aims at Crewe UTC is to support all our students with their ambitions and help provide them with opportunities that can get them on the right path to their desired career. Our Key Stage 4 pathways allow students to continue in to our Sixth Form, another education provider, apprenticeship or employment. In Sixth Form we have many pathways available for students but all of them give our students the chance to pursue a higher apprenticeship, a place at university or employment. Below are just a few examples of what our most recent graduates have gone on to do:
