UTC Leeds joined the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust on 1 September 2023. The Trust has supported the UTC as a Multi Academy Trust partner over the last five years prior to this, supporting a successful improvement programme, which has been reflected in the UTC’s ‘Good’ overall Ofsted rating in January 2023 (with ‘Outstanding’ in two areas), growing student numbers and best ever A-Level results in 2022.
University Technical Colleges (UTCs) have been designed to meet the needs of employers for up-and-coming young talent with the right skill sets and knowledge to fill the jobs of tomorrow. UTCs take students as young as 14 and offer a combination of technical qualifications alongside GCSEs and A Levels. This combination of academic and technical learning is unique, equipping students for professional careers through places at top universities, as well as through higher and advanced apprenticeships.
Opened in September 2016, UTC Leeds offers high-tech, cutting-edge facilities and a first-class educational experience. The UTC is the first school in the Leeds City Region to provide high-quality academic and vocational training focused specifically on the engineering and advanced technology sectors.
The curriculum is developed with global and regional employers as well as the University of Leeds. The learning experience includes a broad range of activities with industry professionals and academic experts.
UTC Leeds is supported by over 70 employers, including major industry brands such as RAF, Siemens and Unilever. Working regularly with employer partners in a professional work environment where expectations are high ensures that students gain the work ethic and attitude that employers are looking for.
