We at UTCN pride ourselves on offering our students the best opportunities for their future career in STEM, whether this is by progressing onto university, an apprenticeship or straight into a career. We ensure that our students are given the best possible advice for their future as well as creating opportunities for them to talk to our employer partners and discuss their options with our IAG and Work Experience Co-ordinator, Christine Walton.
Our progression from UTCN is outstanding. We have 100% sixth form progression onto a degree, apprentice or employment. We believe that this is not only due to our fantastic teaching, but also because we provide extra opportunities to experience work, specialist opportunities in STEM and a focused way of learning. We also have unique connections with Norfolk employers and whilst in Sixth Form, we give our students a full day off on a Friday to attend paid or unpaid work. All of our initiatives are there to give our students the best possible start to their future career in STEM.
