Values and vision

Energy Coast UTC’s vision is to provide all learners in the community with a focused and outstanding education and training experience, where they can reach their full potential and gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to thrive once leaving the school. The Workington secondary school works to meet the demands in the West Cumbria community for workers in the Energy sector, through training the next generation of skilled employees. Students are nurtured as confident, resilient and positive learners who are prepared for the demands and opportunities of a modern and ever changing world. It is important to the secondary school that all students are given the same equal chance of success and that individuals feel valued and cared for during their time in education. A wide range of enrichment activities are available for learners to get involved in and gain skills outside the classroom. 


“Pupils’ achievement is improving across all courses and year groups. All other aspects of the college are improving. Pupils’ welfare, their personal development and safeguarding are all strong.”
