Welcome to Buckinghamshire UTC
Welcome to Buckinghamshire University Technical College (UTC). In September 2013, we opened the doors of an exciting new school for students aged 14-19 years old who want to take specialist courses in Construction or IT.
UTCs are a new concept in education, responding to growing demands from the industry for well-educated, high calibre technicians. They combine hand and mind to integrate national curriculum requirements with technical and practical elements.
The UTC brings together Buckinghamshire New University, Aylesbury College and major local employers like Taylor Wimpey, Cisco, Esri UK and McAfee in equal partnership, offering students the right skills and motivational, work-related learning experience to improve their employability within the Construction and IT sectors.
‘I was delighted to see the students embracing their academic and vocational training in IT and Construction when I visited. We are desperately short of skilled technicians in these areas in the UK and it’s great to meet the next generation’. - The Rt Hon Lord Baker of Dorking CH, Chair of the Baker Dearing Educational Trust, a registered charity that promotes University Technical Colleges.
Bucks UTC is an innovative, dynamic, employment-led environment which will prepare young people to become highly skilled employees of the future through the integration of business with education.
Our mission is to:
