A new concept in education
Welcome to Bucks UTC where we continue to evolve our exciting opportunities for students aged 14-19 years old. If you wish to explore the industry of computing or building studies with our specialist employer-led courses, then you have come to the right place. Alongside a core curriculum at Year 10 and 11 you will undertake a specialist diploma in your chosen area of interest. At Year 12 and 13 you will get the chance to work in many different companies whilst undertaking a course of study which will open up all of the routes you might wish to consider.
UTCs are a new concept in education, responding to growing demands from the Building and Computing industries for well-educated, high-calibre employees. We combine the hand and the mind to integrate national curriculum requirements (GCSE, BTEC) with technical, practical and employer-led elements.
The UTC brings together major local employers such as Taylor Wimpey, Cisco and McAfee in equal partnership, ensuring students gain the right skills and motivation and are given a genuine work-related learning experience which will improve their employability within the Construction and Computing sectors.
‘I was delighted to see the students embracing their academic and vocational training in Computing and Construction when I visited. We are desperately short of skilled technicians in these areas in the UK and it’s great to meet the next generation’. – The Rt Hon Lord Baker of Dorking CH, Chair of the Baker Dearing Educational Trust, a registered charity that promotes University Technical Colleges.
