Working with Employers
Silverstone UTC and its curriculum have been developed in partnership with a wide range of leading businesses and employers throughout the area. Thanks to this mutually beneficial partnership, we are able to offer unique workplace opportunities to students which will allow them to gain both skills and experience in their chosen industry.
Employers will also be fully engaged by providing students at the UTC access to work on real-life work projects for their respective businesses. This provides excellent work experience options for students at state-of-the-art companies at the forefront of British industry.
Here are some of the companies we have either worked with or are currently working with, or who have employed some of our alumni.
Calling All Employers and Training Providers, Help Us to Help You
We know that employers in the UK and in our region have concerns about skills gaps and the work-readiness of some young people. Silverstone UTC is a member of the SEMLEP Careers and Enterprise Network, part of the national Careers and Enterprise Company programme.
Our aim is that through employer engagement at all ages, we ensure that young people leave our school with the skills, competencies, knowledge, appropriate qualifications and attitudes needed by employers for both their own career development and economic sustainability and growth.
