Key Stage 5 Years 12 & 13

What you learn at GPUTC depends on which of our specialisms you may choose – Engineering, the Built Environment or STEM subjects. 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.

The GPUTC KS5 program covers the following key points;

• Delivered as a study programme which combines qualifications and other activities such as employer projects, challenges and career guidance and support which is tailored to each student’s prior attainment and career goals

• The GPUTC core aim are for our learners to study STEM subjects at KS5 which is the study of substantial technical and academic qualification(s) and preparation for employment

• Learners who do not hold a GCSE grade 4 (reformed grading) or grade C (legacy grading) in maths and/or English are required to continue these subjects as part of their study programme

• All study programmes include work experience and non-qualification activities through our employer sponsors, which complement the other elements of the programme and support the learner to progress to further or higher education or to employment

 

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.
