Our exciting curriculum is designed to provide students with a balance of academic and vocational qualifications with engineering and energy as a central focus. Our students will learn through activities which develop:
- Problem-solving and resilience
- Self-management and organisation
- Teamwork and collaboration
- Technological confidence and technical skills
- Enquiry and analysis
- Creativity and ingenuity
A unique and important element of the students’ experience at UTC Warrington are Technical Projects. Employer partners will set students real life projects. Students will work in groups to identify, explore and evaluate possible solutions to a real-life engineering problem. Working closely with employers students will identify and then develop their best solution for the technical project based on their findings.
Upon completion, students, in their groups, will present their ideas back to their peers, staff and representatives from the employer partner involved. Technical projects are designed to deepen and enrich learning from across the curriculum whilst building crucial professional skills and characteristics.
