A Professional Technical Curriculum driven by Employer Needs
The South Devon UTC 2019 curriculum model is designed to appeal to young people who intend to specialise in technical and scientific careers. Our programme offers young people in South Devon a unique opportunity to become technical specialists and experts at a comparatively early stage in their education.
Our 4-year learning programme supports their continued growth to becoming capable, creative and innovative young people and the college is moving towards becoming the 1st choice of educational provider for those intending to pursue careers in the technical sectors.
We work closely with industry-partners and Exeter University to provide an enhanced experience for our learners and our high-calibre school leavers continue to celebrate outstanding destinations with all graduates of the UTC this year having achieved the grades or higher to go on to their appropriate destinations examples of which include:
• Degree Level apprenticeship with Lang and Potter at Hinckley Point,
• Higher and Advanced Level Apprenticeships with South West Water, MB Aerospace, Centrax, The Royal Navy, Teignbridge District Council, Redrow and Volkswagen and
• Studies in a range of courses including Civil Engineering, Aquaculture, International Politics and Electrical Engineering at Exeter, Plymouth, Sparsholt and Nottingham Trent universities.
The Government is committed to increasing technical education, and the implementation of T-Levels is expected to fill the skill-gap highlighted by employers. The programme for this is underway and those who complete the programme are expected to be qualified technicians and engineers in 2023. The UTC programme currently fulfils the need for high quality technical education and meets the demands for the technical education which is no longer provided in the mainstream providers across the Teignbridge and wider area.
South Devon UTC 4-year Learning Pathway
Our 4-year programme of technical education aims to ensure that our leavers are fully supported in becoming highly skilled, knowledgeable and employable future workforce.
