UTC Warrington creates a learning environment where young people can develop the professional skills, competencies and behaviours that will serve them throughout their working life, whilst still focusing on the core business of attainment, progress and outcomes. We are aiming to best position our students for future progression into: apprenticeships, employment, further and higher education.
The curriculum reflects the need to consider progress in core subjects such as English and Maths, whilst developing specialist knowledge and understanding in technical options.

They have opportunities to apply their learning disciplines to project based challenges that develop their employability skills.
