Key Stage 5 Years 12 & 13

What you learn at GPUTC depends on which of our specialisms you choose – Engineering or the Built Environment. We are firm believers in learning by doing and the employer projects are a key feature of our curriculum. Our employer sponsors will set exciting and challenging technical projects that will inspire you to develop your skills and give you the chance to test them out in a real-life context.

 

Work experience pays

At the GPUTC, you will get real-life work experience by getting involved in Employer Projects through our employers and key sponsors: Anglian Water, Marshalls Aerospace and Larkfleet Homes, which will maximise your chances of getting a rewarding and respected job when you leave us.

 

Thinking of going to University? 

When you have completed your studies at the GPUTC, this will put you in a prime position when it comes to applying for a place at university with the added value of real-life work experience to support your application.

In Year 12 there are three options to study at Level 3; the Technical Baccalaureate Programme, Technical General Programme or the Technical Foundation Programme. There is also the additional option to retake your GCSE English/Maths if you did not manage to obtain an A*-C grade. Individual paths can be tailored to your needs and you will get a chance to discuss this at your interview
