UTC Reading recognised as a Prodigy Learning Outstanding Centre of Excellence for a second time
During this term, we received the fantastic news that we had, once again, been awarded status as a Prodigy Learning Outstanding Centre of Excellence (2019-2020).
This prestigious status was awarded for equipping students with a magnitude of digital skills and qualifications.
Students at UTC Reading have access to a wide variety of industry recognised qualifications, such as from Adobe, Microsoft and Autodesk, for free, alongside their GCSE or A Levels. Not only does this make them more employable but it helps them seek out the best apprenticeships and sponsored degree programmes when they finish their studies.
Students in every year group are allocated time in their timetable to study for these exams, which is optional. This proves their level of commitment to improving their skills and qualifications. UTC Reading invests in their students’ future by funding every exam taken, as an integral part of their career pathways support programme.
