University Technical Colleges (UTCs) are a newcomer to the educational landscape, and we are aware that there some misconceptions about them. Our colleges have been set up by employers seeking a pipeline of new talent with the work-place skills, industry knowledge and technical experience required. Government funded, UTCs offer a real alternative to the traditional education system that exists by allowing students to have an active role in choosing their future.
Since opening the doors to our £10m college in September 2016, UTC Warrington recognises there are some common misconceptions around what we and other UTCs provide for young people.
To provide a clear perspective into the exciting STEM pathways available at UTCW, we have put together this Myth Buster to help answer your questions.
