Born out of the skills gap identified in the Warrington Skills Commission in 2012, which identified a shortage of skilled Engineers in Warrington, UTC Warrington is a dedicated 14-19 academy with specialisms in Science and Engineering. With our £10 million iconic new building, filled with £1 million of specialist engineering equipment, we aim to create a unique, aspirational, technical and academic curriculum, which prepares our students for an exciting career on their doorstep, or beyond.
Working alongside our educational sponsor, Manchester Metropolitan University, we have the benefit of their expertise in supporting students into accessing high-quality Higher Education provision, as well as the technical know-how of their lecturers. Moreover, UTC Warrington supplement academic knowledge and experience with employer master classes, technical projects and work experience in partnership with over 50 industry partners, including Sellafield Ltd, Fujitsu, Amec Foster Wheeler, Atkins, Nuvia, Rolls Royce and Tenet Consultants.
Set in an iconic building centrally located in Warrington town centre, with Warrington Central train station and Warrington Bus Station on our doorstep, UTC Warrington is accessible for students far and wide. Through our innovate and forward-thinking STEAM curriculum, which marries creative and entrepreneurial skills alongside Science and Engineering, UTC Warrington will address the disconnect between education and industry, providing students with a competitive edge.
