Our values are in place to help focus and guide our students in everything they do. Values, innovation, integrity and intent. Our innovative approach to teaching and learning allows creative thinking and develops problem solving skills. It helps to prepare our students for work, higher education and apprenticeships. Integrity is about professional conduct and trust in the quality of our work and the way our students conduct themselves. A clear intent drives forward our ambition to succeed and perform to the highest of our ability.
The curriculum also facilitates the development of personal skills. Projects and trips are designed to ensure students are highly employable, professional qualifications are on offer within our CPD and enrichment programmes, and actively engaged sponsors and partners contribute a wealth of experiences including lectures, one-to-one sessions and larger scale events such as the Skanska Takeover Day.
Our sponsors are integral to the UTC experience, and these links are what really set us apart. The contacts and relationships that students are able to build with them can lead to apprenticeships and careers for the future, and our sponsors are ready and waiting to snap up some real talent.
Life at the UTC
There are fantastic personal study facilities, including laptops and desktop computers loaded with computer aided design software. Students are permitted to study off-site in the afternoons if they have no more lessons and are also permitted to sign out for the lunchtime break. A number of leadership and employment opportunities are on offer within the UTC and, as in the professional world, these roles are offered to students with excellent records of attendance, punctuality and conduct.
Students receive high levels of advice in relation to their UCAS applications and personal statements. There are dedicated staff to support this process, and our industry partners also run workshops and one-tone sessions. We are part of the LSBU Group, meaning our students get extra support and guidance when they apply for university or degree level apprenticeships at London South Bank University or any other provider.
