University technical colleges (UTCs) are academies for 14- to 19-year-olds. They focus on providing technical education that meets the needs of modern employers. They offer technical courses and work-related learning, combined with academic studies.
The Baker Dearing Educational Trust plays a key role in developing partnerships and advising on applications for UTCs.
On 28 March 2013, the Department for Education approved 13 new UTCs through the pre-opening phase to open in September 2014 or beyond. See the full press notice here.
You can download a list of the open UTCs and those approved the pre-opening stage from this page.
