We have had a very positive response to the Energy Coast UTC from local parents, carers and students. Below are some FAQs that we have received from parent/carers that we thought might be useful for anyone considering the UTC.

University Technical Colleges are a new concept in education, which are state-funded and free to all entrants. They are like technical schools that are very successful in other countries. Students can enroll at 14 and at 16 and have the opportunity to take a highly regarded, full time, technical and academic course of study that offers clear progression routes into higher education or further learning in work.

The opening of new UTCs is co-ordinated nationally by the Baker Dearing Trust, supported and encouraged by the Department for Education. They believe in providing an opportunity for 14 to 19-year-olds to have a strong technical and academic course of study.
