Our Culture, Values and Attributes


Our Culture

The culture at UTC Reading is built on what we call our 3 R’s; Ready, Respectful, Relentless and are connected with our vision of Transforming Lives Through Learning and our Learning Philosophy that focuses on the Brain, Emotions and Motivation. 

Around the UTC, you will see evidence of our Culture Code. This highlights against each of the three R’s, what students are expected to do each day to support the development of this culture in their UTC. 

Our Values

Our Values are Empowerment, Enterprise, Connectedness, Transformation. 

Attributes for success

We work closely with employers to identify the characteristics and skills they are looking for in potential employees.

We help our learners identify which of these desirable attributes they have and which they can strengthen throughout their programme, ensuring their future employability is the focus throughout their studies.

The UTC Reading Way

At the heart of our approach is our Learning Philosophy that focuses on Brain, Emotions and Motivation. Our culture is built on our 3R’s that set the expectations for our students and all stakeholders. Our attributes are what our students will have developed with us as they prepare for their future lives. When we bring this all together it creates what we call the UTC Reading Way.
