At UTC Warrington, we understand students need support and guidance to help them become successful young adults and to identify the next steps in their career. Meetings with families before starting with us is an integral part of ensuring that we get to know our students as individuals.

All staff pride themselves on their abilities to build positive relationships with students. This ensures that their time at UTC is a positive and valuable experience.

With a clear focus on preparing students for outstanding STEM careers, careers guidance is central to their development. The focus on employability and personal development skills, as well as academic skills, ensures that students are well-equipped with the skills needed to thrive once they leave the UTC. Our partners, including Sellafield Ltd, Wood PLC, Cavendish Nuclear and Manchester Metropolitan University are committed to the growth and development of the UTC and to sustain a skilled and knowledgeable workforce for the STEM industry in the North West of England.

All students are assigned a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) and Progress Leader who will support students and parents throughout the UTC journey. Other key contacts for student support are:

Support & Inclusion

We pledge to respect and value every learner as an individual, irrespective of ability, race, gender or need, and to enable every learner to participate fully in all aspects of UTC life.

Where it’s needed, we will adapt our environment and equipment as much as practicably possible, as well as seeking specialist external advice.
