About Energy Coast UTC

At Energy Coast UTC our intent is to deliver academic excellence alongside a world class technical and skills based practical education, ensuring our students also excel in employability skills and work directly with employers on a range of projects. Our outstanding 14-19 college, located on the edge of the Lake District National Park in an area of outstanding natural beauty, is a thriving educational setting which has nurtured partnerships between industry and education. We prepare students to meet the demand for highly skilled engineers and civil engineers in Cumbria and the world.

Our industry partners who work on a range of projects alongside our students include the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Sellafield Ltd, Morgan Sindall, the University of Cumbria, McMenon and the Royal Navy. Pastoral care is of paramount importance to us and, as a small college, we ensure that we support the well-being of all of our students and staff.
