Energy Coast UTC offers a new style of education for students aged 14 to 19, which specialises in technical studies and is sponsored by the University of Cumbria. It offers full-time courses, which combine practical and academic studies. Employers are involved from the start in shaping and delivering the curriculum. Energy Coast UTC, based on the Lilyhall Business Park, Workington, opened to its first students in September 2014.
Students will follow a different style of curriculum, delivered in a professional environment, which will equip them with a combination of social and practical skills; all with an underlying focus on future employability. Students will study a traditional academic curriculum with vocational programmes related to the Energy sector. They will also spend significant amounts of time each term working on projects alongside subject matter experts from within industry.
Energy Coast UTC will have 140 places available for Year 10 students in September 2017, and 40 places for Year 12 students who have not previously studied at the UTC. The closing date for applications for the September 2016 intake is 12 February 2017.
Further information and a copy of the Energy Coast UTC application form can be found on www.energycoastutc.co.uk. Once the closing date for applications is reached, Energy Coast UTC will liaise with the School Admissions and Appeals Team who will issue offer and refusal letters to applicants for places in Year 10 on National Offer Day (1 March 2017). Energy Coast UTC will handle its own applications for places in Year 12. For more information about Year 12 applications, please contact the UTC.
