What you learn at GPUTC depends on which of our specialisms you choose. 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 options available will develop our students in a rounded way and get them ready for the next stage in their lives. We obviously hope that our GCSE students next steps involve remaining at the UTC, but, there is also the option to move onto a school sixth form or college, an apprenticeship as well as moving out into the world of work.

At GPUTC, all lessons are designed to improve students’ Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours to enable them to become the Engineers, Designers and Architects of the future.


Work experience

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

  • Personal Social Health Education (PSHE)
