The Silverstone UTC Curriculum
The curriculum at Silverstone UTC aims to promote and support the personal growth of the students towards physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual maturity within a structured, cost effective, caring, creative, business focused, energetic and inspirational environment.
This is achieved through providing a balanced, relevant and interesting programme of study appropriate to each student within their chosen route of study which is either Business & Technical Events Management or High Performance Engineering. The specialism qualifications are delivered through GCSE and A Level equivalent applied courses. Throughout the curriculum a range of experiences to promote individual responsibility and independence is integral to the learning experience, alongside clear and focused guidance and support (IAG) in order to maximise achievement and long term success.
Learning and experiences will be gained through employer-influenced projects within the area of specialist study but these also link closely with the GCSEs and A Levels being studied. These provide experiences that will in part meet the needs of the curriculum but more importantly they emulate the world of work and the challenges that are encountered there and provide knowledge and understanding that is normally only obtained when in work. This is a big advantage when students are applying for employment.
The varied and engaging mix of hands-on work experience and academic learning ensures that when students successfully complete the course, they are fully prepared to join the world of work.
