UTC Warrington is the first Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form Technical College in Warrington dedicated to providing a specialist curriculum that excels in Science, Engineering and the digital and creative technologies. Our town-centre iconic building houses £1m of specialist engineering and digital equipment and is centrally located with excellent transport links on our doorstep to ensure that UTC Warrington is accessible for staff and students far and wide.
In the first year of opening, we were over-subscribed at Key Stage 4; a trend set to continue in 2018/19 as we further develop opportunities to get young people into the best careers in Warrington and beyond.
Bridging the disconnect between education and industry, our specialisms reflect the skills needed to build a sustainable workforce and we provide a platform for progression to a wide range of education, training and employment opportunities.
Engineering is a diverse, wide-reaching sector with many paths to follow. Our curriculum is designed to build a foundation of knowledge and grow the students interest in designing, testing and building tomorrow’s technology. Our engineering workshop has been shaped by local employers who have helped us choose industry standard equipment. Gaining real-life practice skills ready for the workplace, our students have an advantage over other students across Warrington. In our Workshop we have the equipment for our students to forge, weld, mould and cut through electrical conductive materials.
