Why Choose UTC Leeds

On joining UTC Leeds, our students will become part of a dynamic, career-focused, enthusiastic community of engineers and scientists. Dedicated, one-to-one educational and pastoral support is available to all students, with careers advice and guidance integrated throughout.

In supporting our students on their journey to the best grades, UTC Leeds teachers will continuously monitor each student’s progress. Progress grades will be assessed and shared with students and parents four times a year in quarterly reports. Students’ individual programmes will be amended on the basis of these reports and additional support provided where necessary.

After two years, students can choose to leave the college to pursue other interests including technical or advanced apprenticeships. Students with the right grades, can also progress into our sixth-form to study GCE A Level maths, one or two (A Level equivalent) Technical Levels in more advanced areas of engineering and design, and choose from a further range of A Levels such as physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, graphic design or further maths.

Major projects with employers will continue in the sixth-form. One of these will be developed further in Year 13 and entered for the extended project award. Those students passing A Level maths, a technical level in engineering, together with the extended project, will secure the nationally recognised Technical Baccalaureate.
