I am very proud to be able to introduce Aston University Engineering Academy to you.

At Aston University Engineering Academy, we have a unique focus on engineering and science that we enhance through our strong links with local and national industrial partners. Working in partnership enables us to deliver an exciting and relevant engineering and science focused curriculum.

It also enables work-based experience for all our students as well as a pool of mentors and role models to support and enhance the academic curriculum.

Learning at AUEA will inspire our young people and motivate them to plan for jobs and careers in engineering and science and will open up clear progression routes into apprenticeships and higher education.

For entry in September 2016, the Aston University Engineering Academy has120 places for Year 10 students and 180 places for Year 12.

Enjoyable, Personalised Learning

All students will follow a curriculum that will ensure that their personal development is enhanced. Public exams will be taken when students are ready to take them rather than at the end of each key stage. There will be an emphasis on a wide range of enrichment activities at all levels so that students experience a broad curriculum. GCSEs, A levels, Diplomas and a wide range of accreditation, matched to the learner, will support the aim of personalised learning. .

The Academy will concentrate on developing the learning skills of all students so that they can become independent learners. Enjoyment in and through learning will be a focus for all working at the Academy. Emphasis will be placed on personalised learning through analysis of individual student needs and aspirations and effective use of differing learning styles. Students will become independent enquirers, creative thinkers, reflective learners, team workers, self managers and effective participators.
