University Technical Colleges and studio schools
University Technical Colleges (UTCs) or studio schools are schools which admit pupils in Year 10.
UTCs are set up by universities and businesses and specialise in one or two technical subjects. In years 10 and 11 they offer a similar GCSE curriculum to a typical secondary school, including English and Maths, as well as their specialist subject. Find out more about UTCs.
Studio schools are similar to UTCs - they also have businesses involved in the curriculum, and focus on developing skills needed for employment including personal coaching and work experience. Studio schools have a similar curriculum to a typical secondary school. Find out more at studio school trust.
