UTC Pipeline Programme

We are now in our second year of delivering the extra-curricular UTC Pipeline Programme, which does not focus on academic learning, but instead on preparing students for the world of work, providing them with a direct line of sight to a career with an industry partner. Every KS5 student will have the opportunity to team up with a Pipeline Partner when they begin with us in Year 12.

The benefits to our students is that it builds confidence, trust, rapport and relationships with a network of contacts within leading industry businesses. It gives them a clear line of sight to a career and it enables students to build the employability and technical skills needed to succeed in the workplace.
